Relationships and People Issues
How often do you avoid conversations because you are worried that saying what you need to say will ruin the relationship? How many of your relationships, either at work or at home, cause you anxiety or drain you? In this class we will help you find effective ways to deal with the challenging people in your life, while also taking all of your communication skills to the next level.
As you practice with tools for setting stronger boundaries, finding your voice, handling difficult conversations, standing up for yourself, and presenting your ideas in a compelling manner, you will find that ALL of your interactions get easier. People will respond to you more positively, want to be around you, and be more likely to offer you what you most need to get to your next level.
In this class we will be using mostly Aspyrre tools and working through specific situations that participants are confronting. With that said, the books on this reading list are optional, but can add valuable learning and insight to your program.
This class will generally be held on the third Friday of the month, at 9am pacific time, 12pm eastern time.
