Social Skills

Socialising is a skill that often needs to be learnt and not expected!

Its is often expected that we should naturally know how to be with other people without having a lot of mishaps along the way. But why? With other skills we know we must learn … we teach a child to read, ride a bike, write their name! Connecting and interacting with other people is also a skill, and like all skills requires teaching.

Whether it be a 3 year old or a 70+ year old, many people are left hurt as a result of the reactions they receive back from other people. This hurt then laces their future interactions with others. When we interact with people we constantly send out messages whether it be with our words, our gestures or our body langauge. We expect these messages to be understood by the person, but sometimes the way that a person receives our messages is different to how we intended to send them out. When the person doesn't like the message that they receive from us, the message we receive back will not always be desired or enjoyable … hence a crash!

This workshop style presentation will support people to understand how their own behaviours and words are likely to be received by another person. With this awareness we can examine our own style of interaction.

The outcome being an increased awareness of how our interactions may be impacting on other people! If we understand how our behaviours are likely to be received by others, we are more likely to choose behaviours that will lead to acceptance and inclusion rather then rejection and exclusion.

Anger is simply a response we use in attempt to manage and gain control over the aspects of life we are struggling to understand or cope with. Not having a grasp of our anger can have a significant impact on our quality of life, which in-turn will have an impact on:

  2. Home life
  3. Work or school life
  4. How feel about your self

In fact – all parts of your life.

Leadership and Effective Communication Skills

The way in which we communicate with others will have a significant impact on our time with other people.

There is a big difference between an intended message (the message being sent) and an interpreted message (the message actually received).

When the message we send is received differently to what we intended, there is likely to be some conflict or misunderstanding. This will result in your time with other people being affected negatively.
