CRM and PCM - Two Fascinating Worlds
As we will discover in a moment, these two are completely different subjects, which is why we deal with them separately, on this website, as well as in our seminars. Both are as fascinating as they are beneficial.
Optimal Communication Using PCM
In our everyday lives we have many a different contact. We experience how easily we can communicate with some people.
We understand each other with almost no words, and sometimes we share the same feelings or thoughts. With other persons, we are not quite as sure, how we should form our relationships.
What should we do? Should we think about ourselves, or should our counterpart make an effort to meet our expectations? Or both?
The Process Communication Model® helps us to communicate successfully in any situation, both in our private lives and at work.
As we learn first of all, how our own personalities are structured, and what makes us tick, we obtain the necessary skills to recognise our fellow human beings and to address them accordingly.
Thus, we succeed in getting our message across, and we can avoid escalating situations, which may otherwise lead to conflicts.
Excellent Teamwork With CRM
As teamleaders and as teammembers, we do not have an easy time. We are expected to complete complex tasks in a structured and timely manner. This applies to many a line of business.
However, what does it imply if a considerable risk potential is added to the complexity of the tasks?
With horror we remember air disasters, tanker accidents, the maximum ultimate catastrophe in Chernobyl, or operations during which the wrong surgical procedure has been performed. How do we minimise the risk of such major disasters?
When using CRM actively, we carry out our teamwork efficiently. We exchange information safely. We learn how to lead a team in a way that the whole team can work hand in hand. We know how to deploy auxiliaries in order to minimise failure.
However, we are humans, and not robots! How can we maintain perfection at all times?
No one is able to perform flawlessly one hundred percent. Thus, we simply cannot expect it from anyone. Rather, we should aim at establishing constructive error management, and learn how to deal with human factors.
The Best for You
In my seminars, you can learn both CRM and PCM without any difficulty. Don´t worry if you have never heard of the topics before. For beginners, as well as advanced learners, I offer CRM and PCM seminars.
Before you take part in your PCM Seminar One, your individual PCM Personality Profile will be established. Of course, you can order this independently of a seminar booking, including an in-depth one-on-one consultation.
You can read about many fascinating CRM topics in my Blog in advance. There, you will find a new article every month.
Who is Behind This Website? - A Short Introduction
Eva-Maria Schottdorf is an emergency physician and looks forward to being your trainer.
When working in the emergency medical service, I employ CRM together with my teams during our calls regularly. For me, PCM does not only belong to the world of business.
Starting 2023: There Will Be Books
After intense preparations, I am currently working on my book about Crew Resource Management. In this comprehensive book, I will present to you the development of CRM, as well as all its concepts, precisely as they are known in aviation.
Clearly arranged in several volumes, the book will be available to you as an electronic, as well as a printed version, also on this website. I have compiled all the important information for you and I will update it constantly.
Seminars With Me - So That You Can Learn Sustainably
You can find ample information about all of my seminars here .
First of All, a Seminar...
I publish all fixed seminar dates early on my website so that you can plan in advance. After you have made your booking, I will send important information, accompanied by a seminar schedule, to you via email well in advance.
During the seminars, I will not only provide you with precious subject matter, but also with exciting and fun exercises. You can apply your knowledge immediately.
It is your seminar! New challenges are waiting for you, take them up!
During our breaks you can establish new contacts, discuss passionately, or just get together and have fun. You can also take your time, and reflect intensively all by yourself.
For your seminars, I will welcome you in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere at the lovely seminar venue Munich (fixed dates). Of course, you can book inhouse-seminars, as well.
... And Then Into the Real World!
Hearing about a topic for the first time, or the first seminar can be the beginning of a road we wish to follow for life.
In my opinion, the particular value of a seminar lies in its sustained outcome. As Johann Wolfgang von Goethe has formulated:
"Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do."
As a Participant
you can think about how you want to apply what you have learned already during your seminar.
From My Side
I will do the best I can for your long-lasting success. It is of utmost importance to me to provide you with comprehensive course materials to keep, as well as tips and tricks. Of course, I will answer your questions even after you have completed your seminar.
As an Organisation
you can plan together with the whole team, how you want to establish and sustain change.
