Since 2001, Paul has modeled the most effective communicators of all time and combined their best practices with the latest research in modern psychology and linguistics to create communication systems and frameworks that can quickly and easily be implemented by any person or group.

Paul Endress Press Coverage

Paul has been quoted in USA Today, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes magazine and dozens of other leading business publications.

For fun he is a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, plays golf, and collects vintage pinball machines.

 

The Importance of Communication

Paul has dedicated the past fifteen years to the study of business and interpersonal communication because communication is the one skill that enhances all other skills. The best of intentions, ideas, plans, and goals are wasted if they are not understood as intended.

In addition, friction and conflict between leaders and subordinates, team members, outside vendors, contract workers, and others creates needless stress and a reduction in morale, profits, and employee retention.

The growth of a multicultural, dispersed workforce has made the need for effective communication techniques even more critical to the success of individuals and companies.

Recently Bloomberg Business completed a survey of corporate recruiters who say some highly sought-after skills are in short supply among newly minted MBA's. The most important and in-demand skill was communication.

The Magic of Communication Styles Book

Have you ever wondered why some people just don’t “get it”?

When was the last time you were on the receiving end of a bad communication and thought that you “heard” someone else say one thing, only to find out he or she really meant something else?

In The Magic of Communication Styles, interpersonal communication expert Paul Endress gives you a simple system you can use to understand your natural communication tendencies and the tendencies of those around you. Then join the story of the employees of 366 Solar as they use Paul’s system to understand and become more effective with each other – and show you how to do the same.

In these pages you’ll discover:

  • One easy change in thinking that takes seconds to implement and gives you a lifetime of improvement
  • How to use the Circle of Styles to quickly get better results from every interaction
  • How to quickly “map” anyone’s style so you can instantly understand them
  • What makes difficult people “difficult” and how to get them to stop their difficult behavior with you
  • How to turn the four primary motivations behind every communication to your advantage

Find Your Communication Style Assessment

Everyone has a natural Communication Style - it's a person’s regular or familiar communication patterns and the strategies they use to communicate across a broad variety of situations.  In other words, it's how we relate to others.

Here are some quick facts about Communication Styles:

  • Everybody (whether they know what it is or not) has a natural Communication Style that he or she uses without thinking.
  • You can achieve the best results by adapting your style to the style of the other person(s).
  • When you adapt to another person it takes energy because you are doing something that is not natural for you.
  • If we’re forced to adapt for an extended period, we eventually run out of energy and revert to our natural style.
  • Under stress we tend to revert to our natural Communication Style.

Another characteristic of Communication Styles is that we communicate most easily with people who are most like us or, put another way, those individuals who have a Communication Style that is similar to ours. Conversely, it’s most difficult for us to communicate with those who are not like us and have dramatically different Communication Styles.

The new Communication Styles 2.0 software and algorithm reveals your natural communication tendencies and delivers your Personal Insight Report in less than ten minutes.

The online assessment instantly delivers a customized report full of actionable insights that you and everyone in your group can use to understand each other and get fast improvement - even if you have been communication challenged in the past.
