IMPROVING YOUR COMMUNICATION SKILLS

Effective communication is more than exchanging words. It is about picking up on the intentions and emotions that go along with the words. It is not only how you speak a message so that it is received and understood by someone in the exact way you intended, it is also how you listen to understand the full meaning of what is being said and making the other person feel heard and understood. Learning effective communication tools will make a big difference in negotiating and will increase your confidence.


PUBLIC SPEAKING AND COMMUNICATION

Public speaking is considered to be one of the top fears. It can be very overwhelming and frightening, and many of us avoid it completely. However, the ability to speak well, one on one, or to the masses, can be one of the most important tools in the “toolbox” of your life. Come learn how to overcome your fears, articulate your thoughts and deliver words that have the ability to advance your career, open doors to fresh opportunities, build and strengthen relationships and much more!


BUILDING SELF-CONFIDENCE

Does wondering and worrying about what others think about you influence how you are living your life? Do you wish you had more confidence in situations or dealing with other people? Self-confidence is a feeling of trusting in one’s abilities, qualities and judgment. In this class you will learn tools to increase your personal self-confidence, which will create more happiness in your world.
