I am Magda – trainer, entrepreneur, life-long learner and coffee lover, and this is my website.
It was born out of my love for Process Communication Model ® (PCM) and all things neuroscience, psychology, personal development, personal awareness, and life in general.
I want to share with you my journey and my learning, and for this purpose I aim to share regular (and hopefully interesting) articles on my blog.
But why PCM?
After applying it for several years and seeing it applied in various organisations, I am now convinced that PCM IS ONE OF THE BEST TOOLS FOR SUCCESSFUL TEAM MANAGEMENT.
PCM started as a therapy model and NASA has used it too, for two decades, as the primary tool for selecting and evaluating candidates. Thanks to PCM, NASA could predict the escalation of astronauts stress in certain situations, and under what circumstances this will happen.
In 1981, at the request of CEO-s, PCM was “translated” into a business tool. PCM is the right team management and communication tool for you and your company if:
- You seek improved communication, synergy and higher organizational performance, but perceive you are surrounded by people who are stressed, demotivated, tired and prone to conflicts
- You would like to make yourself understood faster and better
- You would you like to understand others better
- Help yourself or others avoid stressful situations or get out of your/their stress sequences before these escalate
Why should PCM be applied in your organisation?
- Improved team management – by teaching leaders to tailor their management style to their staff members individually;
- Team motivation and better leadership – by understanding the stressors and motivators for each member of the team;
- Stress management – by understanding how each personality type responds to stress and acquiring the tools to manage the interactions effectively;
- Higher sales – by understanding how and why different personality types function;
- For more united, better performing and organized teams – by understanding the group dynamics and accepting and making the best of the differences between team members.
Who should participate?
- Organizational teams (up to 12 participants / training session) from any industry and their leaders (special team analysis and team coaching sessions can be organised);
- HR specialists;
- Executive directors and managers;
- Supervisors and team coordinators;
- Anyone who wants to understand the mechanics of human interactions and fine-tune their communication skills – be it for their business or personal life.
If you are interested in finding out more about PCM for yourself or for your organisation, please feel free to contact me HERE. I’d be happy to discuss mutually beneficial collaborations.
I know I am subjective ;), but I truly believe that PCM is an amazing tool for constructive team management, improved relationships, better communication, efficient stress management… and much, much more.

Magda (The PCM Lady).
I’m stumped where to start with this, but I feel implored to do so. Ok, let’s start with the person.
Magda is so ‘giving’ by character. She goes above and beyond what you’d expect, providing so much more insight knowledge and value. She knows her stuff too, inside out and back to front, which I found so reassuring. It’s like she has considered every possible question in advance and found the answer. During her delivery of ‘Process Communication Model’, she showed great stamina, enthusiasm, empathy and compassion (both with the subject and the attendees), alongside her unquestionable knowledge and skill putting the materials across.
Don’t be fooled by the name ‘Process Communication Model’. It is one of the most detailed and complete personality tools I’ve seen. I particularly love how it explains my individual psychological needs; what happens when I don’t get my needs met and what occurs under stress, and then remarkably, what I can do about it. Similarly, 'Process Communication Model', helps me have a much deeper understanding of others and how I can recognise their stresses and how I can help them.
I can’t think of a business, or role within any company where knowing this couldn’t help; productivity; profit; engagement; well-being; and teamwork. I would recommend that your business invests in ‘Process Communication Model’ training, for your people, with ‘The PCM Lady’ Magda Tabac.
If your business doesn’t invest in this for you, get in touch with Magda direct, and book yourself onto one of her open courses. It’s a fantastic course delivered by an amazing lady.

At the end of 2020 I attended a PCM course with Magda Tabac.
It was a revelation, both in helping me understand WHY I got stressed about certain things and why some of the people around me did as well. The course offered great insight about ways to handle those challenges in the moment.
It was illustrated with a wide variety of both personal and fictional examples which really helped to bring it home. It offered key insights about the “currency” of different perceptions by giving examples of their typical language – to help you communicate more clearly with them. This is a really powerful model – used by astronauts so that says it all!.
Magda delivered the course with delightful warmth and enthusiasm.

I recently completed Process Communication Model training with Magda. It was a thoroughly fascinating and enjoyable experience.
The PCM model has helped me to understand so much - not just about myself but also about all other personality types. PCM provides excellent tools and techniques for learning about yourself and others, and for identifying how we can all communicate better with others and deal with distress more effectively.
Magda has a wonderful delivery style. She knows her stuff inside out and is so generous about sharing her time, knowledge and excellent materials. Her passion for PCM shines through in every interaction. She is knowledgeable, warm, energetic and enthusiastic. She makes everyone feel extremely comfortable, welcomes all questions and consistently meets the needs and exceeds the expectations of each delegate.
I highly recommend Magda as a trainer and PCM as a topic if you want to increase your self-awareness and improve your communication skills - both on a personal level as well as professionally.

I recommend the Process Communication Model training to those who want to improve their self-knowledge, build better professional and personal relationships and get better at managing stress.
Magda can help you to vicariously experience all personality types, for a better understanding of the PCM concepts.
Mihaela Maiug HR Specialist, Agency of the European Commission, Netherlands
PCM is the one training that I loved while I was learning about it and that stayed with me long after I finished it. Self awareness is so important and so rare nowadays and PCM gives you excellent tools for getting to know yourself and the ones around you better, to understand how each of us could communicate better, to identify the signs of distress and to tackle them timely and effectively.
Magda, the trainer who delivered all this awesome information is a through and through Harmonizer, so you know she will do everything in her power the make everybody in the class feel comfortable and good at all times and a Thinker, so you know that everything will be organized to perfection and all the info provided will be relevant and within the right timeline!
I highly recommend both this training and Magda as an excellent combo to boost your self awareness and upgrade your personal and professional competencies!

Magda manages to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, while keeping everybody focused on the subject presented. She is fresh and authentic, open and ready to answer all our questions, carefully addressing each need of her audience.
Her previous experience in the business environment has been a treasure of relevant examples for me, as I could clearly see she was understanding our business reality and offering top-notch advice.
Oana Nistor Senior Business Analyst at Axway, Romania
I’ve recently had a PCM debriefing session with Magda. I really enjoyed the way the session was conducted, more specifically the flexibility in delivering very interesting information relevant and related to me, also taking into account my previous knowledge in relation to the model.
In addition, another point I appreciated a lot was the availability Magda proved before and after the session. While planning the best approach to move forward, Magda promptly answered all my questions and provided all the necessary details for a smooth organization of the session. Furthermore, Magda remained available after our debrief for any further questions I might have.
Thank you again so much for everything!
