Effective communication sounds like it should happen naturally. Quite often, when we try to communicate with others something can be misunderstood or mis interpreted. This can lead to frustration and create conflicts. Communicating more clearly and effectively requires learning some important skills. Whether you’re trying to improve communication at home, work or friends, learning these skills can greatly improve your connections to others, build trust and respect, problem solving, improve teamwork and overall social and emotional health.
We focus in on areas such as:
• Engaged listening
Effective communication is less about talking and more about listening
The way you look, listen, move, and react to another person
Managing stress in the moment
•Asserting yourself in a respectful way
Assertiveness can help boost self-esteem and decision-making skills
