Effective communication is essential in strong relationships. Yet, do you sometimes wonder how someone could possibly misunderstand what you know you said perfectly clearly? Do you ever feel that someone is not listening or just hasn’t heard you? Perhaps you wonder what is wrong with the relationship? In this course, participants will gain an appreciation of different styles of communication and some variables that cause misunderstandings. Remember that humans are multisensory beings whose behavior gravitates toward the sensory preference that their brain registers most easily. Participants will come away with knowledge of how sensory preference affects communication as well as knowledge of their own sensory preference style and how to apply it to reduce misunderstandings. | Facilitated discussion; Zoom breakouts; Listening to audio recordings.
