Effective Communication: How to Say What You Really Need, and How to Listen When You Disagree.
In the classic TV show “Gomer Pyle,” Sargent Carter would say when angry with Gomer, ” I can’t hear you!!” – prolonging and exaggerating the key syllables. We all are at some time or another on either side of this relationship, frustrated by some challenge to communicating. Are there ways to be better heard? Are there ways of listening that help us to hear what is really being said? This workshop will explore these questions and offer options for more satisfying communication.
Participants will learn to:
1.    “Join” the speaker without agreeing
2.    Ask questions that “bridge” rather than provoke
3.    Look beyond surface feelings
