“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” – George Bernard Shaw

Successful communication results in a common understanding. This can be challenging as people with different personality styles tend to interpret the same message differently.

“That’s not what I meant!” is an often heard phrase following a breakdown in communication.

The answer is intentional communication. When people communicate with intent and clarity, the result is fewer misunderstandings, increased trust and all round better teamwork. 

Having worked with teams from different cultures around the world, we can help the people in your organization become intentional communicators by:

  • Heightening awareness of different behavioral tendencies and communication styles
  • Understanding how different personality styles impact teamwork
  • Developing personal speaking and listening skills through understanding our natural biases and communication filters
  • Cultivating specific practices that enhance communication for the benefit of both the individual and the organization

How We Engage With You

The Intentional Communication & Teamwork Engagement session is an eight-hour experiential learning workshop. Participants acquire a deep understanding of personality diversity and engage in an interactive discussion to develop practical applications of this knowledge. Focus is placed on addressing specific business challenges, elevating performance and driving business results around communication and teamwork.

Leaders will leave this workshop with a heightened awareness of self and team through knowledge of the E-Colors. Combining this knowledge with Personal Intervention techniques, they will be able to leverage team diversity, reduce misunderstandings and friction, and elevate levels of trust, commitment and accountability.

8E is a performance enhancement process for leaders and teams to understand the essential elements of effective teamwork and leadership through a series of coaching sessions.

Through a series of eight one-day coaching workshops, we help you understand and leverage personality diversity to enhance leadership skills, elevate team performance and deliver measurable business results in a sustainable manner.

The 8 Essentials Model


FRS is a customizable performance enhancement process aimed at inculcating proficiency of our core tools such as the E-Colors and Personal Intervention within the organization.

We have found the following three phrases to be critical for organizations to achieve their desired results:


Our coaches first lead workshops and engagements with senior leaders and managers, then with the rest of the workforce to ensure a deep understanding of the tools, mental models and practices introduced. Follow-up coaching with senior leaders and managers is recommended to accelerate change in performance.


Once everyone in the organization has attained high levels of fluency, leaders and teams can begin to realize the potential of applying the tools to overcome organizational challenges, achieve strategic objectives and drive specific business results. Equilibria consultants and coaches work closely with leaders and managers to develop customized performance enhancement processes.


When the organization starts to see the results they desire, we focus on achieving sustainability. This is done through the creation of a Champions Network whereby a number of individuals are identified to form a team to steward the process. These individuals attend a five-day Coach The Trainer workshop to become proficient in the tools and are supported on an ongoing basis by Equilibria coaches.


The FRS Model

ILEC is a performance enhancement program for leaders who want to become experts at team and individual engagement.
