Effective Conversation: Deepening Communication through the Power of Empathy
We all hear how empathy is so important and that more of it is needed, yet few agree on what it is and how it can be learned. Discover the empathic skills of how to hear and to speak what is genuine and non-threatening to your partner, friend, work colleague, or family member. Understand the power of empathy, how to hear beneath the words and connect with the heart. Using life experience, learn the simple and very powerful skills of authentic communication through role-plays, exercises and discussion.
