Understanding is the Core of Relationship
Friction in personal relationships originates from a wide variety of sources. The most common problem is a lack of understanding between people, how do they communicate with each other.
Many problems would be alleviated when at least one person understands themselves and the other person.
Communication Has Been Pivotal To Development
Communication has been absolutely central to our development as a species. The ability to communicate using verbal and non-verbal cues has allowed us to not only biologically evolve, but also to evolve our ideas and philosophies from generation to generation.
Considering how important it is to our lives, it is surprising that communication skills are not routinely developed more formally. Our success as individuals depends on our ability to communicate in our relationships – from the most intimate to the most formal.
When communication breaks down it often heralds the breakdown of the relationship.
Our programs are designed to help people learn to be better communicators and negotiators in both private and business lives.
Develop Emotional IQ - Develop Your Psychological Skills
We strive to improve the world by helping people understand each other.
You may not be aware of your communication skills – most people don’t think about it. However, everyone has experienced relationship tensions at some time.
How would those tensions have evolved if you had better listening skills, better speaking skills, and better negotiation skills? It is hard to imagine an interpersonal interaction that wouldn’t be improved by one or both people being able to understand each other better.
Understand Other People Better
Trying to communicate and manage conflict is almost impossible if you can’t understand other people and what they are experiencing.
The words they use represents only a small part of communication. So much more comes from their non verbal communication and when you can ‘read’ this part of communication you have a far greater understanding of what is happening, and what is being communicated.
Understand Yourself Better
You must understand yourself before you can understand others. When you understand yourself, your own emotions, and your own behaviours, the you have the ability to change and control the way you manage your own responses.
If you don’t understand yourself, it is almost impossible to respond appropriately to others in our lives.
Learn How to Respond to Negative Emotion
Responding to negative communication can be challenging. In fact many people do anything they can to avoid get involved in negative interactions.
However, if you are confident in your ability to get involved, you will be better able to manage situations that invariably arise.
As a result, those around you will be more confident in your presence, they will be comfortable to share with you, and give you more respect knowing that you are able to manage your own feelings and be conscious and aware of theirs.
Become a Leader
Sometimes, ideas of leadership are focused on industry and commercial endeavours. But leadership is more. Leadership is about how people influence and interact with others – not just in a commercial setting, but in personal, social and family settings. The real value of leadership is how we influence the people who are most important to us… not just how we influence those in commercial situations.
