Communication, communication, communication! There are few things as important in the modern workplace, and also few things that go wrong so incredibly often. That is why we have devised a half-day workshop to tackle the biases, misconceptions and myths about communication.

Frederiksplein 54, Amsterdam



How to communicate clearly?

Strong communication is key in making sure that you and your colleagues are aligned, in avoiding conflict and in getting anything done. To reach this level, it helps to focus on the psychological barriers which keep people from interacting in a direct, honest and helpful fashion.

In this workshop:

  • You will consider the obstacle of assumptions, and the difficulty of knowing whether we are communicating effectively
  • You will practise “teaching” others effectively, getting beyond emotional barriers and resistance to new information
  • You will practise “learning” effectively, parsing out what others are really trying to convey
  • You will practise listening deeply and showing that we are paying attention
