The Positions Model for Improving Personal Influence and Workplace Interactions (Pattern Research)

The concept of positions in communication is embedded in the grammar of most languages. First position, second position, and third position translate into first person (I, me, mine, we, ours), second person (you and yours), and third person (he, she, it, they, theirs). These three positions represent how we see the world and our relationships with other people. And, as with most models of human behavior, there is an upside and a down side. Ideally, we can move among the three positions, which translate into personal responsibility and initiative, empathy and compassion, and objectivity and rationality. However, sometimes we get stuck in one position, which keeps us from being as productive and influential as we want to be. Learn what each position stands for and how to incorporate them in how you think and act in your workplace.
