Course Description

IN PERSON: How does emotional intelligence relate to the way we communicate? Why do we so often misunderstand one another? Participants in this course will gain an appreciation for the distinct styles of communication and variables that may cause misunderstandings. Students will come away with knowledge of how sensory preferences affect communication as well as their own sensory preference style and communication style. We will consider how humor, empathy, apology, active listening, body language and generational differences impact communication. Students will consider what their own happiness set point is, and whether it can be changed. Then we will explore ways to do this using demonstrated techniques and opportunities to practice. In this highly interactive class, students should be prepared to think creatively about ways to raise their happiness set point. Our goal is to have happier conversations and to spread that happiness to our family members and friends. | Facilitated discussion.
