The approach on Communication Skills for Wellbeing is based on the theory and practice of communication in a constantly changing world, where we draw on each individual’s unique experience. The key aspects include a growth mind-set, personal responsibility, and limitless potential and endless creativity. Philosophy, psychology, science, and co-creative relationship mentoring underpin it.
Everyone has had the experience of everyday miscommunications in the workplace and at home. This leads to assumptions, misunderstanding, the blame game, personalising and guilt. Followed by stress and anxiety. It becomes a downward spiral, resulting in the deterioration of the work and home environments. Relationships with immediate colleagues and family and friends can all become increasingly and unnecessarily strained. Even the guy in front of you, in the coffee shop or petrol station seems to be deliberating annoying you! Seriously how long does it take for him to pay for his petrol?
What I have learnt from my experience is that clear communication resonates and make sense. It is about being aware of how communication resonates with you and ensuring it makes sense in the context of your own life experiences. In other words, it is about how you see yourself and your relationship with yourself. By developing your awareness of yourself you build a clearer understanding of how you relate to others.
So you come to be aware that the guy in the coffee shop or petrol station is irritating you and that irritation is nothing to do with him but everything to do with you. Communication skills for wellbeing helps you to notice your irritation, reflect and clearly state what your needs are.
My objective is to support you to help yourself to develop your own communication skills and therefore your work and home relationships, leading to a calm life and greater wellbeing.
