Communication is the one and only characteristic that makes us so different from other mammals in animal kingdom - our ability to use words and connect them with our emotional and bodily sensations. Unclear communication is the most common cause of misunderstandings and conflicts. 

Communication is our strongest weapon.

Are you aware of it? Do you know how to use it properly and effectively?

So what to do about that? How to make yourself clear? How to avoid misunderstanding or conflict? How to communicate effectively and assertively? How to listen actively? How to give and receive self-developmental feedback?

Sign up for our course and find out the answers! Step by step registration you will find on our web page!

The main purpose of this training course is to provide you with handy tips and techniques, which can be used in your everyday life in interactions with others or even with yourself. The training course will focus on communication complexly - from the individual through the teams, groups and up to whole university or public. We will be focusing on differences between us, similarities and connections as well, verbal, but also non-verbal language, online communication, team effectiveness and many other topics. We will go step-by-step, ending up with the every part of the week clicking into each other. Participants will be actively involved in all the processes, interact and be constantly challenged in the learning process, working in a safe environment.
