“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” — George Bernard Shaw
It’s estimated that poor communication costs organizations an overwhelming 37 million a year (according to a Holmes report). Also, 400 surveyed corporations (with 100,000 plus employees in the U.S. and U.K.) estimated that communication barriers cost the average organization $62.4 million per year in lost productivity.
No matter how you slice it, effective communication is a key to a team and organizational success.
This course starts with an exploration of the neuroscience behind communication, motivation, and listening. Nearly 50% of the class will be experiential learning, using core mindfulness techniques to increase self and social awareness which is the foundation of being a good listener, building trust and effective communication. The practices taught cultivate change in brain structure and function when practiced over time.
