Program Description

Communication skills are critical in all aspects of life, and they can be challenging. Do you say yes when you really mean no? Do you avoid conflict at all costs? Are you waiting for someone in your life to change in order to get what you want? The good news is that it only takes one person to change the outcome of a conversation—and that person is you.

Join medical doctor Neha Sangwan for an interactive weekend of self-reflection and practical tools that can transform your ability to communicate with even the most challenging personalities. In addition to explaining the physiological connection between your ability to communicate, your stress level, and your health, this workshop teaches you how to:

  • Listen to your body and interpret its signals in order to better manage stress
  • Engage your right-brain creativity to expand your perspective
  • Articulate your frustration and disappointment effectively
  • Talk to people instead of about them
  • Make agreements that stick.

Strong communication skills will increase your efficacy in your working life, deepen your connection in relationships, and contribute significantly to your overall well-being. You will be amazed by how quickly conflicts and misunderstandings can be resolved once you learn to address your specific communication difficulties in this practical, in-depth workshop.
