Having communication problems with clients or colleagues? There are skills you can learn that will begin to change how you communicate with others and therefore, how others feel about you. Learn simple but effective new habits that can serve you at work, and with friends and family at home as well! This fun workshop, using up to date training techniques based on modern neuro science research, will show you how to:

  •  Solve the Problem Ownership Puzzle
  •  Get Yourself Heard and Get Others Listening
  •  Learn How to Help Others Solve Their Problems
  •  Learn the Skills to Get Your Problems Solved
  •  Get Others to Respect Your Needs and to Cooperate with You by Creating Solutions That Truly Meet Both Your Own, and Others’, Needs
  •  Resolve Discipline and Conflict Problems WIHTOUT Resorting to Threats or Punishments
  •  Learn The Latest Conflict Resolution Skills
  •  Values Consulting with Difficult Clients/Colleagues to Change Minds
  •  Influence Others Successfully While Keeping in Tune With Them.

The Transforming Communication workshop teaches you practical skills, it’s not just “theory”. You will be actively involved in the process, and leave being able to act and respond to clients and colleagues in new and more effective ways. Presentations are followed by practice of each new skill, with written worksheets and exercises to back up this experience for you. There will be tasks to be completed outside the class to consolidate your learning and to ensure you practice what you have learnt at work and at home - where you need it most. This workshop is definitely “skills based”.
