Communication for Connection
Communication skills for closer, more connective personal and working relationships
What kind of communication creates connection? How do we practice this and embody it with people who are different than us in some way? This is a biweekly skills class exploring a series of essential skills for communication that cultivates connection. Each session we will drop in with a check-in, an overview of the skill of the week, and a series of exercises to cultivate that skill so that you can take it home or to work to practice. Our time together is shaped by the curiosity and needs of the participants, so bring your questions, scenarios, challenges and curiosity with you! Although this class is focused on your needs and curiosities, we will cover a theme each week. Here is a quick look at upcoming skills: August 17th: Self-Empathy August 31st: Deep Listening September 14th: Reflecting September 28th: Staying Curious This skills class is a compliment to the biweekly Vocal Embodiment class, which supports you to connect with your voice and build confidence.
