Description
Often we find ourselves in situations where we our loved ones maybe listening to us in order to respond rather than really hearing what we are trying to say. And of course visa versa. A key component to honesty and connection starts with getting in touch with ones own true needs from a conversation. Once this is clear, it’s easier to directly and compassionately ask for what you want.

In this workshop, we will:
- learn the four key steps to improve interpersonal communication;
- identify how tension and emotions in situations are evidence and vital information;
- practice sourcing and identifying the core needs at the root of issues in communication; and,
- practice seeking mutually beneficial strategies to resolve issues and increase ease and happiness.

Description
Parenting is perhaps the most dynamic and important role we have in life. It’s a 24hour job with love and wellbeing as primary drivers. In raising children, we want them, as well as ourselves, to have enriching lives. And yet struggles are a natural part of growing into a compassionate human being. Conflict and misunderstandings are eased when we can see actions and behaviour (even the confusing stuff of parenting) as a motivation to meet a need or interest.
 
In this workshop we will:
- learn the four principles and steps of a more connected conversation;
- practice identifying the needs/interests motivating your child’s behaviour; and,
- get in-touch with your need and identify strategies to be in better situations with your children.

Description
In our human-ness there are bound to be misunderstandings whether you’re in line at the bank, in conversation with family or working with a staff member or supplier. At the basis of any communication is a motivation to meet a need or interest. Often conflict arises due to a lack of connection to the core need. Once gentle honesty is expressed and needs understood, efficiency and cooperation is improved.
 
In this workshop you will:
- learn the key steps of a more connected conversation;
- practice sourcing and identifying the core needs in your communication and that in others; and

Communicate with Compassion & Consciousness - (Full Day Workshop)

Understanding Needs Awareness as the Genesis of Emotional Intelligence

Description
In developing needs consciousness, we learn to separate out the emotion and the strategy we use to meet the underlying need. Bringing underlying needs into consciousness, allows us, in fact, reminds us to connect with another person’s humanity, despite how we may hold or perceive their behaviour. In practicing needs awareness, we build capacity in empathy in ourselves and in others and as a result increasing connection and the ability to meet mutual needs and wants.
 
In this workshop you will:
- learn and practice the four principles and steps of intentional communications
- self awareness of own needs/interests and articulating those
- identifying emotional cues as clues to unmet needs
- understanding what is motivating others (colleagues, friends, family)
- practice intentionally self-reframing to ensure mutual understanding
- practice receiving and providing empathy
