The Communication Practices Course
The Communication Practices Course trains you in the tools to become an even better communicator in any situation. You will engage in one focused practice for each of the 5 weeks and meet weekly with a community to support you with guidance and leadership from the Rev. Dr. Eileen Epperson.
Throughout the journey of this course you will be able to produce practical changes in the way you speak and listen to the people in your life so that they hear you and truly understand what you mean.
Each week will be devoted to exploring one practice in your life (e.g. getting crystal clear about what you want to communicate). At the end of each week we will come together on Zoom to debrief and troubleshoot and celebrate each other. Players are always surprised at how well that week went and happy to hear from others on the team.
Why Enroll in This Course?
You will see results immediately in your conversations. You will expand your ability to be present, both to yourself and to others. You will start to find your voice and use it. You will learn how to genuinely clean up communications that didn’t go well and use the occasion to learn. You will not be stopped by those bumps in the road. You will become courageous and unstoppable in your commitment to express yourself in ways that are empowering to everyone in your conversations.
-Setting up an effective dialogue
-Clarifying what you want to say
-How to relate to the other person or group
-Determining how much you want to reveal yourself
-Experiencing your feelings after a conversation you’ve had, whether it went well or poorly (rather than numbing yourself or stopping the feelings)
-How to clean up conversations that don’t go well
-Experiencing the joy of creating a new avenue of connecting with others.
You will buddy up and have a 15-minute phone or Zoom conversation(not email or text!) during the week to support each other.
