Want to learn effective ways to hear and to be heard? Consider joining us for this training on speaking and listening compassionately at a time filled with uncertainty. Speak Peace in Difficult Conversations: when communication really matters!
Oftentimes, when the stakes are high and something important needs to be discussed, we habitually resort to one of two ways of communicating:
Explode – blame and attack the other person; or
Withdraw – become quiet and avoid the situation
Neither of these options leads to communication that leaves us feeling connected and satisfied. Thankfully, Compassionate Communication can strengthen our capacity to engage in authentic conversations, whereby we are able to find ways for the needs of both parties to be heard and attended to.
Join us for this daylong conference to learn new skills that will help you to:
- Communicate in a way that inspires compassion and understanding.
- Initiate difficult conversations with more ease and confidence.
- Remain centered and peaceful while hearing difficult messages.
- Shift patterns of thinking that lead to guilt and shame.
- Express and receive gratitude with ease.
- Translate criticism and judgment into life-serving messages.
- Strengthen your capacity to work cooperatively.
