The Masterpiece Marriage presents "Effective Communication Strategies"
When couples promise to LOVE, HONOR & CHERISH their spouses until death do us part they are making a commitment they hope will lead to a strong marriage. Most people want to be in relationships where they care about and are cared for by their spouse, where they intend to persevere through the inevitable ups and downs, and where they have a long-term view of the relationship. One mechanism through which these goals are met is communication. Through the utilization of verbal and nonverbal communication strategies couples in committed marriages develop a sense of "TOGETHER-NESS" that sustains them through difficulties and over time.
The present number of knowledgeable American adults of the cruel act of striking America’s sons and daughters in schools with wooden boards still being legal, is sufficient for having this class of “voiceless” citizens gain federal “legislative protection” from this practice swiftly (targeted primarily at socioeconomically-disadvantaged students and those having special needs, particularly nonverbal autism).
The bill is already in the hands of the appropriate federal leader, John Kline, US Education Committee Chairman (also member of US Armed Services), having been introduced to Congress, not once, not twice, but three times by the lovely New York Representative Carolyn McCarthy, widowed through an egregious act of violence, herself (having in mind a decrease in crime through a decrease in teacher-to-student assaults).
Chairman Kline is empowered to bring this brutal form of student “bullying” by American educators to an end--he also receives a six-figured salary to do so.

Do All Relationship Problems Stem From Poor Communication as claimed by relationship experts?
According to many relationship experts, all relationship problems stem from poor communication. Of course it sounds very logical that: "You can't communicate while you're checking your iPhone, watching TV, or flipping through the latest publication." This may or may not be truth in an unresolved relationship problem.
Here are some of the Relationship Problem-Solving Strategies that has been suggested by experts:
It has been said to make an actual appointment with each other. If you live together, put your cell phones on vibrate, if you have small children, put the kids to bed, and let voicemail pick up your calls.
Go to a public spot like the library, park, or restaurant where you'd be embarrassed if anyone saw you raise your voice and screaming.
Set up rules, not to interrupt until the other person is through speaking, and use derogatory phrases of accusations.
Show you're listening. Don’t involve or performing other chores during the meeting. Nod often for agreement and confirmation that you heard the message.
Even though those are well and excellent suggestions with the best intentions, it may or may not affect the relationship problems let alone resolve it. There must be more specific strengthening of the weaknesses associated with relationship problematic situations.
Relationship problems can always, without exception be resolved, through the increase of nonverbal communication, which is telepathic. If you don’t know much about how this resolves relationship problems immediately on the spot, you can ask Dr. Yuen, the founder of the Yuen Method, how this is done on his LIVE radio show.
SHOW NOTES: This is part of the JOYFUL ART OF BUSINESS™ series and our episode today is, “Fake it ’Til You Make It?”
This is a popular concept and we need to really explore what it means!
1) What are we faking?
2) What is confidence?
Belief in yourself that is communicated to other people. It strongly correlates to power as people believe in leaders who believe in themselves.
“Confidence,” he told us, “is the stuff that turns thoughts into action.” (http://www.theatlantic.com/features/archive/2014/04/the-confidence-gap/359815/)
3) Why are we faking it?
Because it is necessary, we don’t have it and we know it. Effective (and contented) leaders (of an organization, of a family, of a group, etc.) believe in themselves and then have a much easier time having other people follow their lead.
“Success, it turns out, correlates just as closely with confidence as it does with competence.” […] “When people are confident, when they think they are good at something, regardless of how good they actually are, they display a lot of confident nonverbal and verbal behavior,” [...] “They do a lot of things that make them look very confident in the eyes of others,” he added. “Whether they are good or not is kind of irrelevant.” (http://www.theatlantic.com/features/archive/2014/04/the-confidence-gap/359815/)
4) So, what is the problem with faking it?
Everyone else knows that we don’t have it and are just faking it.

Are there days when you don’t want to go to work simply because you don’t want to deal with some difficult person who works there? Do you get agitated when you pull into the parking lot and see “his car?” Do you feel if this person would just go away, your job would be a lot easier? But, that person happens to be your boss or a relative of your boss and he isn’t going anywhere! What can you do about that?
Join host, Judi Moreo, author of “You Are More Than Enough” and guest, Courtney Elizabeth Anderson, the Workplace Relationship Expert, as they explore how you can practice the “Joyful Art of Business,” and look at ways to combine the positive benefits of our professional endeavors (“business”) with the overall return on our efforts (“joy”). Work should not be a chore. The act of engaging in professional endeavors, in any capacity (i.e., as an employee employer, entrepreneur, contractor, volunteer, paid, full time, part time, intermittently, etc.) is an expression of our ideas and creative endeavors (“art”).
You don’t want to let the negative actions and behaviors of others steal your joy. By understanding that many people lack confidence and are unhappy which affects the way they behave, and by boosting our own self-confidence, we can improve our relationships. “When people are confident, when they think they are good at something, regardless of how good they actually are, they display a lot of confident nonverbal and verbal behavior. When they are faking confidence is usually when the difficult behavior arises.” Anderson believes that truly confident people don’t alienate others. Listen in and learn how you can boost your confidence and deal with those who are currently making your life miserable.
I am on vacation so we are re-running this awesome show with Cindy Dachuk.
This week we will be discussing my favorite topic. Language! You have heard me say it before- from my experience, language is an integral part of your psychology. I chose the word language instead of communication because language is a little more specific. When we look at our language we’re considering the words and tone, and nonverbal cues that we use to communicate with others. This conveys our beliefs, how we filter outside information, and what meaning we have assigned that information in our mind. Although Professor Mehrabian found that words account for only 7% of our communication, what he meant was 7% of external communication. Because the internal communication drives the other 93%. It is the language and words we use with ourselves, in our thoughts and perceptions, that really shapes how present ourselves through our behavior. This week we will examine the nonverbal cues that account for so much of our language.
THE FRIEND ZONE - Call (347) 237-5342 to LISTEN live or join in on the discussion.
There are differing explanations about what causes a person to be placed in the friend zone by another. It might result from misinterpreted signals or from a fear that a deeper relationship might jeopardize the friendship.
Here are some of my own ideas of several cases in which someone might become relegated to the friend zone:
(1) person A is insufficiently attracted to person B,
(2) person A misinterprets nonverbal cues from person B signaling their interest in deepening the relationship,
(3) there is sexual repulsion (but not enough to block a friendship).
(4) In a friendship between the two people, being relegated to the friend zone can happen to either person
(5) In another instance, a woman described her male friend, someone she was comfortable with as if he was one of her girlfriends, but their relationship became problematic when he wanted their relationship to develop romantically but she did not. One man compared the friend zone to being a "third wheel" and having only a platonic relationship with a woman.(6) the friend zone is "like the penalty box of dating, when your only crime is not being buff and unobtainable.
 always having girlfriends who were "girls" but were only his "friends", meaning there was no sex between them.

Patricia St. John started her career in teaching, and after nine years left to raise her son with disabilities. Through her own challenges with limited vision Patricia further developed her other senses and was ultimately drawn to gain a greater understanding of, and to study finer aspects of nonverbal communication links and skills. This lead to Patricia’s extraordinary work with dolphins in allowing them to educate her. Her ground breaking research with dolphins pioneered the way of understanding often silent forms of communication in a whole new way. Using what she had discovered and developed from her years of behavioral interacting with different species of dolphins, Patricia was able to break through to children with autism, helping to bridge the gap of communication between these children and their caregivers. Based on Patricia’s astonishing work with dolphins and children with autism, she wrote her award winning book, “The Secret Language of Dolphins.” The book won the prestigious Delta Kappa Gamma Society International Educator’s Award. St. John is also a long time Fellow of the famed Explorers Club in recognition of her pioneering discoveries and her work in uncharted areas of nonverbal communication, as well as her many published professional papers on the subject. Patricia's newest book: “Once An Enchanted Island”, while fiction weaves within it many truths that we all can relate to. She also runs and operates two businesses, Enchanted Environments, and Patricia St. John Fine Antiques.

Michelle Garcia Winner, MA, CCC-SLP. The Center for Social Thinking
The Whole Child and Social Thinking—Unraveling the challenges of a diagnosis to support social thinking and learning
Michelle Garcia Winner specializes in the treatment of individuals with social-cognitive deficits: those with diagnoses such as high-functioning autism, Asperger Syndrome and nonverbal learning disorder. She began teaching Social Thinking® in 1995 to brighter students when she went to work for a high school district as the district’s speech language pathologist. Social Thinking was born out of necessity as a way to reach those “bright but socially clueless students” that needed more information than just what social skill to use. They needed to know why they should bother to use that skill. The strength of Michelle's work is that she breaks down the research and abstract concepts and creates concrete ways for this to be done. This approach led GreatSchools.org, a leading national nonprofit organization, to call Michelle, "...the leading expert in the field of social skills."
Patricia Hirsch, MCC, interviews Jackie Sloane, MCC. Jackie will discuss how we can create profound change in our lives and organizations, based on what we tell ourselves is possible, and what we communicate. What do you want to create? Whose influence or involvement do you need? What matters to these people? How can you engage them? What requests do you need to make? What’s in the way of what you wish to create? Our beliefs, what we think about ourselves and others, and what’s possible is expressed in our verbal and nonverbal communication. Change the story you are telling yourself about what is possible, and align your speaking and actions, and you literally transform your life. Humans have enormous capacity for learning. This is actually simple, powerful, magical and may not always be easy.
