It’s all about EMPOWERING your communication.
Language barriers can sometimes disempower people in their communications with others. Expressing yourself clearly is key to how successful your communications are.
Sometimes people hear what you said, rather than what you meant!
We all listen through ‘filters’ which can impact our understanding of what was meant, rather than what we thought we heard. Whether it involves an issue, a negotiation, an interview, or many different interactions, it helps to know your rights to help you better communicate.
This will not only empower your communication, but also give you more confidence!
Before the need to communicate, it is important to know the purpose and the outcome you want. It is also important to consider who it is that you will be communicating with.
At different times, Empower Your English (EYE) facilitates 2-hour workshops to assist individuals in gaining greater equality through more empowered communication.
In the forums we discuss topics such as:
The keys to defining the purpose of communication
- When to use assertive language
- How to use encouraging language
- How tone can affect communication
- What role humour can play
- How to respond to discrimination or intimidation
We cover the four major forms of communication:
- Face-to-face communication
- Text communications
- Email communications
- Telephone conversations
