Do you ever wonder why you connect so easily with some people and not others? Do you get frustrated when you describe something and the person you’re talking to just doesn’t seem to get it and you wonder “Am I crazy or are they?”
We need to start first with understanding ourselves in order to better communicate with others – and work more efficiently and effectively. Whether that is a client, a co-worker or a significant other. We all know that we cannot change others, so how can we know enough about our preferences and strengths to accommodate someone who is different than us.
A portion of our strengths and preferences we are born with and some of it we have learned through our collective experiences. This session will get you started on understanding yourself so that you can better work with others. Remember, ‘common sense’ is only common to one person – you! Join us to learn how to begin your journey for self-improvement.
