Communication is an art once explored and understood. It invites us into our heart, mind and voice, and into that of those around us. It is full of subtlety and skill and requires us to be courageous in both sharing and offering silence to others.
In this fun and interactive webinar series, learn practical communication skills to connect you to your feelings, concerns and ideas, empower your voice, and strengthen your professional and personal relationships (including with children). Experience an engaged learning environment with me sharing personal stories and research, leading experiential activities, showing descriptive PowerPoint slides, and inviting questions and discussions.
