Each day we are forced to improve ourselves to meet the demands of our own expectations as well as the expectations of those around us. The vital link between us and other people is communication. If we are unsuccessful with our communications, it is very likely that we will be unsuccessful with just about every other area of our life that involves people. Unfortunately, successfully articulating our thoughts and feelings is a challenging job. Add to that the challenge of comprehending others with empathy, and we can see why effective communication is not an easy task.
I came away with skills and an understanding of why my communications have been misunderstood in the past. I now have the know-how to take with me and to put into action to correct this. This makes my life more powerful and puts me at ease when sharing with others.

This course makes it easy to see where my communications falter. Now I recognize when I don’t communicate what I think I’m communicating, as well as understanding how to convey what I’d really like my message to be. I appreciate having new tools to work with and learning in a fun environment.
