This program guides you and your team in reframing how you express yourselves and listen to others. Instead of habitual, automatic reactions, your words become conscious responses based firmly on an awareness of what you are perceiving, feeling and wanting.
You will learn to express yourself with honesty and clarity, while simultaneously giving others respectful and empathic attention.
You will learn to replace old patterns of defending, withdrawing or attacking in the face of judgment and criticism, to perceive yourself and others, as well as your intentions and relationships in a new light. Resistance, defensiveness and violent reactions are minimized.
When you focus on clarifying the difference between observations, feelings and needs rather
than on diagnosing and judging, you will discover the depth of compassion.
