Communication Intelligence

The things we do.

Communication—It's All About The Framework

This communication framework has been developed in conjunction with the Harvard School of Business over the past 10 years by Deon Basson and his team at 2interact with offices in Johannesburg, London, and New York. More than 850k assessments have been distributed worldwide, and a decade of data has helped us define this framework as one of the most valuable communication tools of the century. Companies such as Coca-Cola, Dell, Vodafone, and Deloitte have taken our assessment and have utilized this framework.

About the Instrument

The instrument breaks communication preference down into two groups; communication styles, and communication behaviors. Through training, this framework can help you understand your own communication preferences, and educate you and your teams on the appropriate times to employ specific communication behaviors.

This is not a merely another personality diagnostic. This is a communication-specific strategy developed to increase connection, negotiate better deals, increase sales and profits, and define change in a way that will reap efficiency and efficacy through corporations around the world. We are able to provide clients with their own personal profile and teach them the skills to enhance their ability to connect with their colleagues, customers and prospects—and we have the data to prove it.
