There is more to communication than just talking and responding. Most
people believe that they communicate just fine. How well do you
communicate? Have you ever been told that you don't communicate well or
have you experienced being misunderstood?
Do you listen to respond or listen to understand?
Effective communication promotes a sense of trust at its core. Conveying words,
facial expressions and hand gestures ineffectively can destroy home, church,
personal and work relationships. Leaving out details in your communication,
forgetting to communicate important information and not listening actively
prevent you from being able to properly communicate in a way that is essential
for sustaining a relationship.
Problems with communication is the top cause of divorce, conflict between
parents and children, lost promotions at work and lost jobs. And it is
one of the top reasons that people leave churches.
This seminar will explore ways to identify problems in communication and skills
to communicate to be understood and to understand.
