This is the logo for the relationship skills adaptation of
the interpersonal processes we've been teaching for 25 years. We are looking for alliances to apply these skills to singles looking for sole mates
so their subsequent interactions will be positive, leading to happy relationships and not leading to divorce.

A Most Promising New
The Fish That Got Away
Last fall, I was contacted by a business broker with a
contract which, when signed, would sell
the exclusive rights to all of IDEA's products: videos, DVD;s, CD's, our VAK game, books,
workshop materials to an advertising
agency. No guaranteed income, no end
date to the contract, but a promise of
a small percentage of their estimate of income from all this. After more than
two months of negotiating, we could not
reach an agreement. Their estimate of gross income, hold your breath
and your skepticism for a moment, please,
was $10,000,000.00 a month, enough to inspire some creative thinking on
my part. Now, my percentage of this
was very small, but still, that's a lot of income.
This advertising agency specializes in Internet marketing,
and one of their major clients is a matchmaking group so we've been exploring
ways to tap into the matchmaking market.
2insync will be a matchmaking firm based on an
entirely new strategy for singles to meet their ideal other.
The biggest problem with dating on the Internet is what we call the
"Fantasy Factor" caused by clients projecting who hey want to be into
their profiles. Our strategy is based on first identifying a
client's true persona and then developing their communication skills
through training. We'll use advanced communication skills training and events
held after the trainings to evoke the
chemistry that makes successful matchmaking. a mystery. Our new approach will reduce the mysterious
elements and create, instead,
opportunity and enjoyment. You'll be in no
hurry to find your mate because the journey is so much fun.

Please leave us a comment, let us know what you think of this series.
We envision the
Internet community to be formed from
three channels…..Corporate Clients
(going back 25 years), Communication Coaches and 2insync members. The linked website with video blogs would serve as a job referral source, an information clearing house, a meeting
place, and even a social interchange venue.
The Internet community site would, of course, be international since
"Influencing with Integrity" has been translated into 8 languages,
and we already have certified trainers around the globe.
One possible new
channel could be opened by setting up an Internet community for Communication
Coaches. IDEA would issue Communication
Coaching Certificates to those who have attended a live training or an e
learning training. These certificates
would attest that you had completed the training for advanced communication
skills, useful in business or in private relationships.
profession has gained many satisfied adherents and could benefit from the
skills in the "Influencing with Integrity" seminars. Many people do not have the need or the extra money for
a psychologist or a psychiatrist, but do need someone to listen and to guide
them in finding creative solutions for miscommunication, misunderstandings,
and even heartbreak. Communication Coaches can fill this need with flexible
fees and hours. Communication Coaches
are trained to think outside the box, to listen carefully, and to use their
increased perceptions in a professional
manner. By teaching a client the steps
to a State of Excellence, the Communication Coaches can spread this useful
ability to those without the time for a training course and thus improve the
productivity, work satisfaction, and disposition of hundreds and even thousands of people.
discussions seemed to favor having five different levels of expertise
recognized by these Certificates.
- Syntonics Facilitator
- IDEA Trainer
- IDEA Master Trainer
- IDEA Senior Master
The first level would be Communication Coach which would be earned by attending and
passing a three day live training or a 90 day e learning. The next level would be attained by
completing both of these first two training opportunities. This would be named "Syntonics
The next level would
be based on the candidate attending an Advanced Training in California (on the
beach at Pajaro Dunes) and the certificate would be issued for " Certified
IDEA Trainer". After one year of
conducting trainings (or 8 trainings in
number) the certificate of "Master
Trainer" would be earned. After
teaching 15 trainings, the candidate would
move up to the level of assisting in the Advanced Training and be
eligible to own stock in IDEA. Increased
commissions are earned at each level.
The 2insync Coaches, Facilitators and Trainers would be
organized in a similar manner. Coaches and Facilitators would be certified to teach the first 8 Modules of the Influencing with Integrity
series in both the live classes and the
live portions of the e learning.
|New Advisory Board Meets
first meeting of our new evolving Advisory Board was held on Marh 3,
2007 in Palo Alto. The following members were actively involved in
about possible future trajectories for IDEA.
Jerry T. Brown
Genie Z. Laborde
Topics considered and contemplated were: IDEA's
website, marketing literature, new Channels, old clients, new clients, the
intern program, the Affiliate Program,
additional emphasis on Sales Trainings, and ways the Board Members could
assist the corporation
IDEA's Advisory Board met for the second time on
April 28. The following members were
present and each one expressed their opinions about new channels for the influencing skills. The consensus was that corporate training,
with IDEA's 25 years' of experience,
successes, and mountains of research
should continue to be pursued diligently. Other channels were not "Low hanging fruit", If opportunities turned up for the other
channels, then that would be another matter and grist for another meeting.
