Roadmaps to the TALK2ME© System

Communication Turn-Ons

Bookmark and Share


Drivers on the two-way communication highway avoid turning off good talk. Common barriers to effective communication which seminar members say you must steer around:


  • Emotions, emotional displays, drama
  • Too much talk without saying anything
  • Beating around the bush instead of getting to the point
  • Inaccurate information – too many feelings not enough facts
  • Bad outlook
  • Bad mood
  • Shooting the messenger
  • Saying one thing and doing another
  • Putting value on project, not people
  • Mistrust
  • Discourage telling truth


You want to create talk that is priceless? You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain. Try these talk shoes on for size:

  • Be rational
  • Ask directive questions
  • Listen with three ears
  • Ask for more facts and fewer feelings
  • Use a good outlook on life
  • Spread a good mood around when times are tough
  • Implement what the messenger advises
  • Do the new and record the results to logically find out what works
  • Put value equally on getting things done and on the people who get the things done
  • Build bridges of trust by being reliable
  • Encourage telling the truth…which sets you free


It’s all about communication. Everyone says so…everyone knows so. Every organization and family flies or flunks based on their effective use of communication skills and tools. The TALK2ME© system can show you the map around communication turnoffs and the way to get on down the road of solving problems and seizing opportunities.

Clinical psychologist Dr. Dennis O’Grady is the developer of the TALK2ME© system, which is central to business innovation and couple communication through using positive and effective communication tools.
