“By languages, in all their facets, we can live in peace or go to war. We sing songs in harmony, or shout insults in anger. We experience connection or disconnection. We work together in peace or in pain. The choice is ours.”—Anna Kendall
Every so often, we meet people with whom we find it difficult to communicate. For one reason or another, we don’t seem to be on the same wavelength—it’s as if we’re speaking different languages. It’s frustrating when we try to discuss something with them or understand their point of view.
The late renowned management consultant Peter Drucker claimed that 80 percent of all management problems were the result of faulty communication. Poor communication also causes strife in many relationships.
The 7 Life Languages communications profile has been one of the most powerful and effective teaching and training tools that I have had the pleasure of using. Since most of our interactive behavior involves communicating with others, the knowledge gained from learning about ourselves and others through the Life Languages can only enhance, heal, strengthen, and improve our personal and professional relationships. This powerful tool can be used in any setting. The wisdom gained when individuals learn their own unique set of Life Languages is enlightening and automatically helps to create a greater appreciation for diverse perspectives. This powerful information has been a significant addition to the curriculum in our Management and Business Administration Program.

Healthy relationships are key to every business and family. My husband, Marcus, and I decided to implement the concept of the Life Languages years ago and found that it is a wonderful tool of communication, not only corporately at Daystar Television Network, but within our own family. Fred and Anna Kendall are dear friends and their sincerity in developing and empowering people with character-based-communication surpasses the ordinary tactics currently used in the corporate world. I know Communication IQ will be life-changing and we highly recommend it!

I am pleased to recommend the Kendall Life Languages Profile instrument (KLLP). I have found it to be a very accurate assessment tool, as well as an indispensable day-to-day communication and consensus building aid. I have spent over twenty years in the food service business. I have functioned as the president of Wendy’s Restaurants of Canada, an executive vice president of Brice Foods, president of I Can’t Believe It’s Yogurt US Operations, and owner/operator of eighteen Wendy’s Old Fashioned Hamburger Restaurants. During all of these postings, I have had exposure to many management skill profile instruments, but none have proven to be as valuable as the KLLP instrument. I urge any organization that is looking to more fully understand the dynamics between employees, departments, and project teams to give serious consideration to using the KLLP process.
