Rose from Leary


Rose from Leary is communication model. After loads of research the American psygologist Timothy Leary found a way to predict people’s reaction. The method gives you insight to make conscious choice’s in your conversations and actions. It helps you to recognise behaviour.

For example: In the morning when you get to the bus stop everyone reacts differently. Some people want to be left alone, some are loud, some want to talk, etc. etc. When your loud you can expect a reaction if you can be quiet.

Action → Reaction
Cause → Effect
Sending → receiving

In an conversation you can switch really quick between the boxes. This method comes in handy when you have a hard conversation. It helps you to analyse their behaviour and in that way to help you understand them better. You can react responsive to their behaviour.

It’s good to keep in mind that the behaviour is not by definition wrong. Every reaction had his cause. And you need all the boxes. When you take one away you lose the balance you need. By being flexible in the boxes you can change the behaviour of the person you’re working/talking with. Underneath here you see a table how you recognise verbal and nonverbal behaviour.
