We all have our own styles of communicating and these styles can dramatically impact the outcome of conversations. A key factor in communicating is to be heard. Introducing our ideas can take two directions.... to listen and be open and consider the idea or close down because of the words or tone used. This latter idea prevents the opportunity to resolve the potential conflict.
It is important to remember, it's not a conflict that's the problem but rather how it is handled. There are simple but very effective skills to prevent us from sabotaging our message and help with the presented conflict. Join us in this webinar, where Merle Rein will show us how to prevent, minimize and resolve conflicts via effective communication.
