EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATIONS | COURSE

“There is a difference between listening and waiting for your turn to speak.”
— Simon Sinek

Does your staff frequently come back to you with something completely different from what you thought you asked for?

Our effective communications workshop aims to provide you with the tools necessary to break down barriers, bridge communication gaps, limit conflict, and establish a foundation in which you can build trust both faster and deeper. Through this effort, you can ensure that your message is delivered clearly to your staff, thus saving you time and money.

OBSTACLES

  • Our built-in Fight or Flight mechanism in the face of trouble or conflict
  • Humans generally listen to reply, rather than listen to understand
  • Our own need to be inclusive and inject our story can actually push people away
  • We lack the trust necessary to be vulnerable with others

OUTCOMES

  • Develop communications skills that will enhance any relationship
  • Learn to build trust faster, and deeper
  • Develop the skills to share information with others without eliciting confrontation
  • Discover how to mitigate conflict, encourage dialogue, and create synergistic resolutions

OBJECTIVES
