The Power of Effective Communication

Stop Sabatoging Your Relationships and Start Communicating Effectively.

No matter what your life circumstance, the ability to effectively communicate  with others will have a major impact on your job performance and on the quality of your relationships with others.

It may come as a surprise, but communicating with others is the one activity you do more than any other – except for breathing. No doubt there’s plenty of communicating going on in your life. But how effective is it? What results does it get you?

In today’s high-stress, fast-paced world, it is more difficult than ever to find the time to be a good communicator. Simply hearing someone else is not enough; neither is just talking and assuming others immediately understand what you are telling them. The truth is – old habits are hard to break, and if your communication habits are as unskilled as most people’s are, there’s a lot of habit-breaking to do.

You will learn powerful techniques enabling you to more effectively communicate with others using both verbal and nonverbal skills. You will also learn to enhance your listening skills and gain an awareness of what it takes to initiate and respond successfully in your interactions with others.
