What is PCM?

PROCESS COMMUNICATION MODEL

PCM® is an innovative communication and personality model that enables you to understand, motivate and communicate effectively with your environment. We started using PCM for our own communication trainings and activities and we want to spread it further. Since 1978, PCA has used NASA to select astronauts and build effective teams, today you can use it.

The Process Communication Model® offers reliable and proven methods of identifying and understanding the personality structure, explaining the impact of life events on a particular personality and communication dynamics among people. Based on the scientifically acclaimed clinical discovery of PCM, more than a million people from five continents from various areas (such as management, business, sales, education, politics, medicine, interpersonal relationships, etc.) have been trained in Process Communication Model.

NASA uses PCM since 1978

NASA began using PCM (Process Communication Model®) in astronaut selection and education as early as 1978, when it hired Dr. Taibi Kahler to advise on the astronaut selection process. One of his tasks was to identify the types of personality and to choose those who understand each other better and can work together.

The reason was obvious - cosmonauts will spend a lot of time confined in a small space, in stressful and potentially dangerous situations. While working on this project, he used a PCM model that NASA then used as a basic tool for astronaut selection.

Today, the model is used by directors and managers of large companies and corporations, leading politicians and psychologists, and YOU can!

Dr. Taibi Kahler

Process Communication Model® was created by American psychologist and university professor Taibi Kahler in the mid-seventies. He studied interpersonal communication and, while working with clients, noticed that there were certain patterns in everyday behavior that were associated with specific positive and negative responses to certain things and events. He also saw a number of negative reactions that were associated with stress. Taibi concludes that based on what your partner says and how he / she behaves, you can reliably predict his / her reactions in various stressful situations.

For his scientific work The Miniscript, on which the Process Communication Model® is based, was Dr. Taibi Kahler was awarded the Eric Berne Memorial Scientific Award in 1977 by the International Transaction Analysis Association and recognized by experts as the "Nobel Prize in Psychology".

Types of personalities according to PCM

Dr. Kahler's behaviour and personality research has confirmed that each of us is a unique mix of six clearly defined personality types.

Each personality type is characterized by specific behavior, its strengths and has its psychological needs. Each type recognizes and perceives the world in its preferred way and prefers its favorite communication channels. Dr. Kahler has proven that each type has its predictable stress sequence - the behavior it demonstrates under stress. It is the ability to predict behavior under stress that is one of the main advantages of PCM in management, communication or personal growth.

In PCM we talk about personality types in people. We use different types of behavior and ways of communicating with different types of personalities. Our personality is composed of all six personality types, some of which are natural for us, other require greater effort.

The first step in identifying your personality structure is to fill out our on-line Personality Pattern Inventory. After completing it you will get your personality “condominium” profile, which will allow you to know your individual personality composition.
