Workplace Communication

Foster productive interpersonal communication with colleagues and clients

Effective communication in the workplace is essential for a company to create value and retain the best employees. In today’s global economy, all employees must be able to communicate and work together smoothly to achieve goals. Nurturing a comfortable, non-threatening, respectful environment where individuals have the skills to share their strategic vision provides a foundation for optimal growth and increased success.

In this workshop, we cover the principles of Nonviolent Communication as it relates to colleagues and customers:

  • Dealing with difficult co-workers and customers gracefully and effectively
  • Communicating with colleagues with compassion for positive results
  • Increasing cooperation and sincere contributions among team members
  • Expressing opinions and discontent with respect
  • Learning to give and receive honest feedback without taking it personally
  • Resolving conflict through dialogue and mediation skills that create connection
  • Developing listening skills for a deeper understanding of colleague and client needs
  • Revealing the consequences of gossip, negativity, cliques and rumors

Workshops with a specific focus on customer relations, team building, in-house communication and negotiating for win-win resolutions are available. Participants will learn clear, practical and compassionate strategies for results-oriented communication.

Compassionate Parenting

Learn to communicate from the heart and restore peace and joy in your home

Parenting is the most important—and humbling—responsibility of our lives. Unfortunately, most parents are not taught how to talk to their children in a manner that inspires self-discipline, mutual respect and loving-kindness. Come learn how to handle disagreements, diffuse problem behaviors and create a meaningful connection that transforms poor communication habits into those that restore peace and well-being in your home. As you develop your new skills, you will turn communication challenges into opportunities for growth and loving connection.
