Although there are is an unspoken expectation that we all understand how communication works, truth is, for most people, this skillset is something we have never been taught. Knowing what to say in difficult situations or how to proceed when we feel overwhelmed with emotions, can be hard.
For many of us, when life gets difficult it is commonly a result of communication breakdown. Saying or not saying the right words, in the right way, can impact our intimate relationship, family bonds, friendships or working life. This can lead to devastating outcomes for everyone involved.
Yet finding the right words and actions isn’t easy, this can cause anxiety, that can sometimes become a further barrier, which inhibits our ability to connect.
Learning to communicate well helps us overcome our fears, take well-considered risks and build successful relationships, all of which are foundational skills for living a full and meaningful life.
This six-week course breaks down the key elements of communication to easily understandable steps and offers practical strategies that enable you to confidently connect with others in a meaningful way.
