This video tutorial course walks you through what to do when you find yourself in a difficult conversation. You will learn the three most important communication skills step-by-step.
Save Time-Communicate Effectively.
This fast, easy skills course will teach 3 of the most crucial communication skills. (1) How to avoid a misunderstanding, (2) How to respond to criticism and (3) How to empathize.
Miscommunication wastes time. Fine tune your communication skills to avoid countless headaches that result from assumptions, misunderstandings and arguments.
Note: This course does not cover sales, public speaking or persuasion strategies
Scientifically Proven Methods
These strategies are evidence-based, drawing from the work of emotional intelligence expert, Daniel Goleman, and relationship scientists, John and Julie Gottman, who have revolutionized the way we understand human interaction.
We have conversations with people from sun up to sun down. When these conversations go well, they lead to quick problem solving, decision making and connection. Conversations that don’t go well lead to long drawn out dialogues, misunderstandings and distance.
The 3 skills that you will master from this course are the result of 40 years of scientific observation of 6,000 real people having real conversations.
We know what works and what doesn’t.
Prevention is Always Better Than Intervention
This course is built on the concept that people need information more than they need help. Many times we stumble into miscommunications simply because we aren’t educated about common predictable (and avoidable) communication patterns. These strategies can be applied to the following contexts:
- Discussions about politics or religion
- Conversations with co-workers
- Long-term romantic relationships
- Difficult conversations with family members
