Shut Up and Listen - Effective Communication for Clarity and Understanding

Facilitator: Rusty Fox - Sandler Training

About the Program: The ability to communicate effectively is essential in both your personal and professional lives.  Truly effective communication is a multi-step, closed-loop process. Each step has the potential to influence the message being communicated in a manner that may increase or decrease its clarity and ability to be readily understood.

We will examine the  – the words, the tonality with three components of communication which the words are spoken, and the body language that accompanies the words – each of which contributes in varying degrees to the total message. When all three components are congruent, they unify and strengthen the message. When they are not, they weaken or blur the message which can give rise to misinterpretation, misunderstandings, and poor communication in the form of “dueling monologues.”  We will also explore the channels through which messages can be transmitted and the concept of listening with a view toward understanding.  Further, we’ll address the concepts of restatement and paraphrase as active listening techniques
