Explore how conscious conversations can enhance your well-being through learning to communicate in a way that builds trust and relationship.
- Make your interactions with people more considered and empathetic
- Enable you to give and receive feedback
- Assist you when dealing with difficult conversations
- Increase your confidence for taking the initiative and getting the best out of any conversation
Often we think because we have two ears and can hear and a mouth and speak, that we are communicating. We talk, yet we often miss the point in terms of communicating. Conscious conversations requires us to think about our interactions and how we communicate. Often we lack the confidence to say what we mean (respectfully), ask for what we want, or to deal effectively with difficult conversations.
When problems arise, they are often the result of the wrong conversation, or indeed no conversation at all. Conscious Conversations provides a practical introduction to techniques, backed up by robust theory, that demonstrate how to give and receive feedback, as well as how to manage challenging situations positively and with confidence.
All of these techniques apply whether the conversation is at work or home, with your peers, your manager, the people you manage, your friends or your partner!
It’s about creating consciousness around how you communicate.
Most importantly it will teach you to listen.
“We communicate to understand. By understanding we demonstrate empathy. With empathy, we build trust. With trust we enhance our relationships and relationships are vital to our well-being.” ~ Di Granger
