Forge Spark: Connect

3 Power Skills for Effective Communication and Meaningful Relationships

You can be a Master Connector

What is a "Master Connector"? Someone who is able to connect with another person in a meaningful, effective way.

Connection is about communication. You may have heard the saying, "You can't not communicate." It is cliche but true. We're always communicating. But have you ever felt like you were just not getting through to somebody? Like even though you were using the same words you were speaking different languages?

While some people seem to have an innate talent for interpersonal communication, for most people it is a learned skill. While it is true that you are always communicating, it is also true that how you communicate matters. What we say is not always what people hear. Learn to communicate in a way that both helps you understand and be understood.

This program will teach you skills you can start using today to improve your ability to communicate and connect with other people. These simple but effective skills can be used in the workplace, the home or the community.

The course will cover:

The "sweet spot" for effective communication and mutual understanding.

How to go from just processing sound waves to truly listening to someone

How to take the negativity out of a conversation and turn it towards productive dialogue

How to handle almost any disagreement and move it towards a resolution without fanning the flames

You're just a click away, so join us today!
