Although social media has allowed us to become more connected than ever, face–to-face communication is a crucial skill required in our personal and professional lives. The pace of relationship building in person is actually quite different than what we experience on-line, and more and more people report feeling a sense of awkwardness in face-to-face communication.
Professionals who need to expand their networks sometimes feel that they don’t know who to talk to, while others worry that they don’t know what to say to get a conversation going. Fearing that they will feel awkward, people shy away from in person gatherings that could make a difference both socially and professionally.
In this fun and interactive workshop, we will break down communication into three very simple action tools that participants can implement right away.
Participants will learn:
Action Tool #1 – Just Connect
The fundamental first step in connecting with another person so that good productive communication can follow.
Action Tool #2 – Listen With No Agenda
The underrated skill of generous and creative listening, a skill that builds trust, collaboration, and clarity in agreements.
Action Tool #3 – Climb The Ladder
How to improve mutual understanding by factoring in the role of mood, attitude and state of mind when communicating with others.
