Tell Me More! Leveraging Client Modalities, Strengths, Insights, Session 6-1Denslow Brown, CPO®, CPO-CD®, MCC, Master Trainer (ICD)
Identifying Processing Modality strengths and sensitivities reveals important organizing opportunities and challenges for both the client and the Professional Organizer or Productivity Consultant. We routinely ask our clients "What works?... What doesn't work?" We need to listen deeply to and beneath their answers -- and ask for more. Through this coaching approach, we gather the material to build a bridge from where they are now to where (and who) they want to be. The Processing Modalities Model was developed ten years ago (by a PO and ADHD coaches) to demystify an individual's management of his or her life, time, home, work and belongings. The nine processing modalities represent basic functioning approaches. The first five modalities are sense-based; the remaining four are more complex (cognitive, verbal, emotional and intuitive). You and your clients can make great use of this model without a deep education or analysis. The simple framework will enable a discovery-based partnership with any client. The Processing Modalities Model is valuable tool in client assessment, motivation, self-awareness, systems design, and habit development (maintenance). Using modality insights in a creative collaboration to address your clients' goals successfully -- and benefit them indefinitely.
