S18/01 Communication Skills for Everyone
Do you want to better present your thoughts in the workplace, in social settings, in your own home? This course will give you some very practical skills to achieve this. We will interact on topics such as ‘Assertiveness vs Aggressiveness’, Personality Types’, ‘Vocabulary Watch’, and The Art of Good Questions.’ This course will be packed with information and will show you the power of words and the impact of our communication style. Do you have conflict in your life? Are you a ‘bridge builder’ or a ‘wall builder’? In our busy lives, we all need to be intentional in our business and personal relationships. When we do take action in our conflict, do we focus more on the ‘problem’ or the ‘person’? We can become solution-focused thinkers. This course will give you an opportunity to learn how a great deal of reconciliation and restoration can be achieved with our verbal and non-verbal communication skills. Instructor Peggy Jensen
Please bring a notebook or small binder to class so you can capture important points and begin to develop a resource for yourself. Some handouts will also be provided for your ongoing work on this subject.
