MA 083: The Triforce of Communication – Multiamory


It’s dangerous to go alone…take this! It’s the Triforce of Communication!

What is that, you ask? The Triforce of Communication, other than being a nerdy title, are the three primary goals of communication in any given conversation or interaction with a partner. Communication breakdowns often occur when you and your partner have mismatched goals. If your partner thinks you are seeking support or acknowledgment when you are actually seeking problem-solving advice, disappointment and frustration can show up faster than you know it. In this episode, we talk about these three different goals, and how you can use the knowledge of these goals to make your communication more effective.

Kathy Labriola’s original video on communication goals can be found here:
