Description

This free course teaches you the six central aims communicating in a way which builds great ongoing relationships. 

It is equally applicable to business, personal and intimate relationships.

There is nothing which can do more for your career prospects than improving your communication skills.

This is the free foundational course for all of Dr Lexander's courses on communication such as:

  • The 10 Steps for dealing with upset people
  • The 7+ Steps for asking for what you want
  • The 11 ways to spot a conman/woman
  • The 15 ways to charm/engage someone at first meeting
  • The 14 Steps for turning around a toxic relationship
  • Etc

This current course also covers the theoretical foundation for Dr Lexander's communication system. The starting point was a remarkable finding from Game Theory which showed that, in ongoing relationships, the best way to win is to not try to win. This is explained in the lecture 'TIT FOR TIT'. 

Dr Lexander originally published his system as a book called How to Communicate Effectively and build relationships. These are just a few of the comments from readers:

  • "This book changed my life."
  • "The most useful and positive book I have ever bought."
  • "...worth 1,000 times the cover price."

That book is out-of-print. But the videos are better... far better because you can watch them with your team members, work partners, family and loved ones and so together build better relationships, better teams, better businesses and better lives.

Every course come with a one-page summary PDF.It is highly recommended that you print this out and stick it on your fridge door.

Your journey to better relationships and a more meaningful life starts here. Join the journey.

Who is the target audience?
  • Everyone who wants to have better ongoing relationships personal and business.

The foundations of effective communication
4 Lectures 19:16

This lecture is an introduction to all my courses on effective communication. What is unique about them is that they teach you step-by-step systems. For instance:

  • The 10 Steps for dealing with upset people
  • The 7+ Steps for asking for what you want
  • The 14 steps for turning around a toxic relationship
  • The 11 ways to spot a conman
  • And much more

This is the first and foundational course, The Six Central Aims of Adult Communication. And it is FREE.

These courses are based on my book, How to Communicate Effectively and build relationships (out of print). Here are some of the comments of readers: 

  • "The most useful and positive book I have ever bought."
  • "It's complete. It's invaluable. It's wonderful."
  • ".. the gem worth 1,000 times the cover price: for each of these he provide achievable, understandable and doable 'stick-on-the-fridge-door' steps. This book changed my life."

My Udemy course are far far better than the book because you can watch them with your loved ones, your family, your team members and so together turn around your communication, your relationships and your lives.


Introduction: "This changed my life"
05:02

This could be considered as either a short introduction to the introduction or an add-on to the introduction.

Recently I had a Taiwanese friend experiencing terrible difficulties with one of his teenage daughters so I sent him my material hoping it could help him. He turned straight to 'The 10 Steps for dealing with upset people'. This is what he wrote back to me:

  • "Immediately, I found things I thought I did right but were terribly wrong."
  • "A powerful checklist for the things we've done right and wrong in relationships.It helped me immensely."
  • "Now, my daughters have got closer to me than ever."

Maybe if you've read this, you don't need to watch the video now.

If you never do any other course, please do this free course on the Six Central Aims of Effective Adult Communication. Just this could help you a lot.

Seduction by the Stars: "My all-time favorite book" "My girlfriend used this book to get a guy and now they're married." “This is the Bomb!" "I have bought this book 10 times. Whenever I lend it to a friend, I never get it back."

The Secret Meaning of Names: “I have read many “name” books… but none of them came close to describing the  person…you described 100% their inner conflicts and direction and the  essence of their life path.”
