Communication Strategies 03/16/2021 - 03/16/2021 $275.00

Effective communication skills are fundamental to success in many aspects of life. Statistics point to the fact that approximately 85% of our success in life is directly connected to our communication skills. That means no matter how determined, how dedicated, or how highly educated someone is, they still have a low probability of success without the right communication skills. This one-day workshop is designed to help you improve your interactions with people in the workplace and at home. If you struggle to find that middle ground between being too aggressive or too passive, or perhaps need to enhance your ability to handle difficult situations without being manipulated, then this workshop is for you!

You will learn:
How to identify common communication problems
Develop skills on how to ask questions so that you gather the most important information needed
Identify what your non-verbal messages are telling others
Learn established practices aimed at listening actively and empathetically to others

While learning about the five approaches to relationships, you will also master how to create a professional image for yourself, learn how to firmly stand your ground when saying “no” and discover the 10 commandments of positive relationships.
