The Animal Inside You Waiting to Ambush Your Communication with Allison Keeley
In this presentation, Allison will discuss how our survival instincts, inherited at a DNA level, can so often be triggered and totally derail our communication. She will also share examples of what it can look like, and how recognizing the signs of ambush can improve our ability to avoid it or rescue ourselves and others from it when it happens.
Objectives for the Evening
1. Discover how instinct plays a role in human communication
2. Learn how to recognize what it might look like when instinct shows up in your communication
3. Explore what you can do when instinct ambushes you
Allison is a communication coach and trainer, and veteran public speaker. Her fascination with human language and communication began when she lived in Europe as a young child; everyone spoke more than one language and none of the television was in English! She also had a lifelong love affair with animals.
While pursuing a degree in Social-Psycho Linguistics, Allison explored opportunities to work with wild and domestic animals. This exploration led her into a career that spanned more than 20 years, interacting with the animals and the public as a zookeeper and trainer. She even ran away with the circus – twice!
The unique approach that Allison uses to help her clients understand and dissolve their communication blocks is a direct result of her understanding of how humans and animals communicate. She combines insights from the animal kingdom with her own knowledge, skills, and intuition, helping people bridge the gaps created by communication misses that are often a result of our animal instincts.
Allison shares insights and observations into what causes conversation to get lost in translation, and then helps resolve those repetitive conversations that inevitably turn into disagreements and fractured relationships. She provides the necessary clarity to navigate the emotional blindness that most people develop in highly-charged situations.
