Whether it is a climate study in an organization or a couple that go for marital counselling, most of the time communication is highlighted as a core challenge. We interact with each other constantly and with each interaction we can either have a positive or a negative impact. Communication thus forms the foundation of all relationships. However, communication is often a complex process that consists of both verbal and nonverbal messages.
In this course you will learn how to listen with compassion, to understand basic body language and to use that to show sincere empathy. So, if you struggle to deal with “difficult” people; if you feel uncomfortable when people are emotional or angry; if you struggle to build meaningful relationships; if you find it hard to read body language, this is the course is for you. This course will teach you how to engage with empathy in a very practical way and will equip you to build lasting and meaningful relationships.

My passion is to really make a difference! By guiding people to make choices in terms of their value system and teaching them essential skills. Skills that they can use to grow and fulfill their potential at work and in their personal lives. To unlock the vast potential in each of us, I believe, I as a trainer must have integrated theory and real life experience. I feel confident that my PhD provides me with a sound academic background. Combined with that, I have years of experience, working with people in a wide variety of organizations. From the feedback received, I know that this can be a life changing experience, if the student commit to growth. I am willing to go the extra mile in sharing my knowledge and skills and provide student support.
