One of the reasons that humans dominate the world is that we are social creatures. We can work together to achieve amazing things (and sadly, terrible things too). Interestingly, some theorists believe that the main reason that humans need bigger brains compared with other animals is to enable us to manage the complexity of human communication.
Communicating effectively with others is really hard and really important. When we communicate well we build relationships and create opportunities to achieve what is important to us. This session will unpack this core group of skills.
We will explore the art of delivering a message. You will learn how to clarify the purpose of your communication. We will help you to get the response you want by focussing on the other person’s wants and needs. You will learn how to become better at taking second position so that you can better observe how your communication impacts on others and how others interpret what you say.
Together we will explore effective listening skills. In the session, you will experience the power of being present when someone speaks. You will learn how to ask good questions, demonstrate understanding and find out what is really going on. We will explore when and how to show empathy.
You will learn how to become skilful at identifying and overcoming blocks to communication in yourself, the other person and the situation.
This session will help you to communicate in ways that have more impact and as a result get the outcomes that are important to you.
