What challenges do you face?
Poor communication is the number 1 cause of stress in the workplace. And where there is stress, there is a lack of engagement, creativity and results. Purposeful, constructive, communicative bridges must be built, so that goals can be met and business strategies can progress and evolve.
Communication is much more than the words which are exchanged: each of us has different behavior styles, filters and judgments which influence the effectiveness of our communication.
We all experience pressure in this fast-paced world: the immense amount of stimuli we receive during the day; our family life; the working hours; the phase of life in which you find yourself; the demands an employer makes on you, as well as rapid and sometimes invasive technological development. All require a deep capacity in us, to be able to keep up. This demands individual coping and communication strategies which are easy to apply.
Conflict, change, and stress are a regular part of everyday organizational life. The key to thriving employees is resilience: the ability to bounce back after adversity and to grow. Being resilient doesn’t prevent tough challenges from happening, but it does provide individuals with the strength and the wherewithal to recover and move on, time and time again.
Developing resilience is a lot like engineering a building to withstand an earthquake. It requires a solid foundation and a flexible structure that won’t crack or crumble under pressure. In human terms, this translates into self-efficacy, connection with others (empathy), mental and emotional agility, as well as effective coping strategies.
What will this training bring you?
In this one day interactive training, you will reveal to yourself, in your own process, the layers of your innermost self: your strengths, your values, the energy drainers and gainers which make up your day, the stress signals resulting from any drainers, among other aspects, in order to arrive at your personal communication strategy.
The ultimate goal is to ensure you have the emotional agility to create meaningful communication with others and with yourself. Possessing this skill is fundamental to being resilient in facing (future) challenges.
We share content from different perspectives: behavioral styles based on DISC, practical tips from Compassionate Communication, Appreciative Inquiry, Positive Psychology and deep knowledge of the human stress response. Together, they create the right blend for communicatively connecting with ourselves and with others.
