Everybody (whether they know what it is or not) has a natural Communication Style they use without thinking.
You can achieve best results by adapting your style to the style of the others.

If we’re forced to adapt for an extended period, we eventually run out of energy and revert to our natural style.

How The Communication Styles 2.0™
Model Works

Easy-to-Understand and Easy-to-Use

After years of research, conducting seminars, and working with tens of thousands of people, Paul has created the Communication Styles 2.0™ model and Circle of Styles™.

These two tools make it easy for you to understand your natural communication tendencies and see how you are likely to interact with others with either similar or completely different natural tendencies.

On the Circle of Styles, the styles closest to each communicate most easily using their natural style. Those farther apart on the wheel have more difficulty communicating, while those opposite from each other on the circle have the biggest communication challenges.

What Communication Styles 2.0™ does next, and what makes it most unique and instantly useful, is it teaches you how to become a more effective communicator with simple, tangible actions that you can begin using right away.

Your communication style report, combined with your personal action plan will become the two most powerful tools you need to become a better communicator and to improve the communication within your team.

Best of all, the concepts are easy to understand, easy to use, and will benefit you for the rest of your life!

When communication tendencies, strengths and weaknesses are understood, internal team functions and processes become optimized to take advantage of the strengths and compensate for the weaknesses.

Interactions with external teams and stakeholders improve as well, becoming more amicable and productive.


When team members work one-on-one, and they learn to adapt to each other’s communication styles, allowing them to complete tasks easier and faster.
