The Key to Communication

Communication is said to be the most important skill in life. And effective communication always comes down to one thing - mutual understanding.

Based on the premise "Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood" (from Stephen R. Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People) this program explains empathic listening and shows how it helps us understand and successfully communicate with others.

One of the biggest obstacles in interpersonal communication is our tendency to respond autobiographically - meaning from our own frame of reference. We advise, probe, interpret, and evaluate others' messages based on our own experiences and motives.

In listening, an autobiographical response prevents us from clearing our minds enough to really hear and feel what is being said. Conversely, when we listen with the intent to understand ("empathically"), we are able to gain insights into another person’s thoughts and feelings more accurately. Empathic listening is both an attitude and a skill.

The Empathic Listening program contains 3 separate video components and a corresponding workshop that provide solid instruction on this key communication skill. Participants are given practical tips and specific phrases they can incorporate immediately into their daily conversations to ensure that they are listening with the intent to understand.

Participants learn to: Diagnose before they prescribe, listen empathically, and seek to be understood from the other’s perspective.

Videos included in the package are:
