The number one reason why we don’t communicate is fear of the other person’s reaction, yet communication is key to building successful relationships. How can we overcome the hurdles that stop us from communicating and making real connection with others, in all areas of our lives, at home, work and play? This webinar explores what gets in the way of clear communication and provides a framework for creating a safe space for courageous, honest communication to happen.
Come and learn about some key connection styles and the all-important format of how to create a daily clearing process to enhance communication in your relationships. Why do a daily clearing process? To get clear with the other person/people. It’s as simple as that. A clearing is a simple structured process which can be used in families, relationships and at work.
