Learn To Say What You Mean, Hear What Was Said
Sometimes we have trouble saying what we are thinking and feeling. There are times when we want to communicate what we think is important, and what we will or will not do. We want to tell people they have been heard. To communicate effectively we need to express ourselves clearly; then we need to check to see if the other person heard what we meant to say.
Saying what we mean and hearing what was said is a learned skill. If we grew up in a family that encouraged open honest communication, we learned it. If we observed a lot of passive or aggressive behaviour, we learned that, too. The nice thing about being human is that we can learn new ways of saying and doing things.
The agenda for a communications workshop includes:
verbal and nonverbal communication
irrational thinking patterns
words and actions that encourage
steps to effective communications
This workshop can be designed for two days, one day, or half day presentation.
