Affinity, Reality and Communication (ARC)

"The ARC Triangle is the keystone of living associations."

-- L. Ron Hubbard

Reality: how much agreement you have with a person; what you agree to be real
Communication: your exchange of information and ideas
Understanding: The result of combining affinity, reality and communication

Part 5: ARC at Work

Your job is good or bad depending on the level of ARC at your work place. When the workers and management have a high level of ARC for each other, the job is a joy. The group feels like a team, accomplishes a great deal and expands. Yet when the people in a group dislike each other, disagree with each other or do not communicate well, you have high stress, low productivity and poor morale.

If you like your job, you have good ARC with at least some of the people there. You talk about the work all day which means you have good communication, you more or less agree on work issues which means you have a shared reality about the work, and you feel friendly toward these people meaning (affinity).

On the other hand, you might have weak ARC with a few of these people if you rarely talk, disagree on certain things and do not particularly like each other. You might even have an enemy at work: you automatically disagree with the person, refuse to talk to the person and feel hatred toward the person.

If your ARC is low with too many people, you will not enjoy working there. Fortunately, you can increase your ARC for any group of which you are part.
