This program is for leaders at all levels
Our word choices can lead to communication traps and misunderstandings, leaving us feeling frustrated, confused, or defeated. How can we identify these pitfalls, in ourselves and others, to communicate more effectively? In this four-week online course, you will learn to identify common communication gaps and how they occur, then practice communicating through conflict. You will:
- Practice clean talk to close harmful communication gaps.
- Identify limiting assumptions and beliefs that cause misunderstanding.
- Identify your default destructive approach to conflict and find constructive solutions.
- Develop personal strategies for overcoming the triggers that provoke and escalate conflict.
