All The Info You Need To Know About The Course
Good communication is a vital life skill. In this course we will explore the 2 main forms of communication, verbal and non-verbal. You will learn skills to improve your communication and you will increase your understanding of why it is essential for success in all aspects of life.
Communication is a very important skill to understand. It can create or destroy. It can bring clarity or create confusion. It is something everyone does, but few take responsibility for. It should come with greater responsibility than it does.
In this course we will take a look at what communication is and the power it holds. We will shed light on the different forms, and help you understand why it can be so frustrating.
In order to get what you want across to another individual, as we stated in the goal setting lesson, you must now develop the communication skills to help you do that. This means you have to learn to set boundaries, expectations, and learn how to truly listen.
This is a powerful course that will raise your awareness around how you currently communicate, how you carry yourself and how you ultimately can get better results with your new skills.
Communication is a serious topic. Effective communication can relieve you of many self-created issues that you may deal with in your life. It can lift you over obstacles that have blocked you in the past and allow you a smoother path to your future.

The introduction to communication will provoke thought and reflection about how communication has impacted your life. We do this through humour and general discussion. The assignment will take you on a personal journey to places where we are able to understand and become fully aware of our own communications impact.
This lesson will help you begin to learn the importance of creating pictures. For it is the pictures that we have in our mind that determines how we listen, how we formulate our words and how we determine the results that we see.
It is about understanding and skill building to eliminate the chaos. Learning is taking chaos and creating order, over and over again.
Our Word is how we see ourselves. It has significant impact on those around us and ourselves. If we speak poorly about others or to others, it is often because of something that we are struggling with.
When we share our WORD, we share our outlook, our perspective, our experience. When we get control of our thoughts, only then will we have control of our words.
Thinking before speaking is a great skill. We have been taught to use words, to structure them so people understand. However, we are not taught how to THINK first.
We want our voices heard and in doing so, often we just open our mouths and words come flying out. Like our thoughts, our words can appear chaotic and confusing. When we can take a second, group the thoughts, we have no problem being responsible for our words.
Apologizing for not being responsible with your words will be tolerated less and less the more you do it. Be mindful before you speak.
