 How to Communicate
 in Stressful Situations 
 

This 90min lecture explores the idea of EQ and communication. Fascinating!

Researchers concluded that people experience on average 27 emotions each waking hour. With nearly 17 waking hours each day, you have the potential for about 456 emotional experiences from the time you get up until the time you go to bed.  Of all the emotions you will experience in a day the majority of them will be while you are at work! People who manage their emotions well are easier to work with and more likely to achieve what they set out to do and are more effective in their communications- no matter how stressful the situation.

 How to Talk so People
 will Listen 

 

Have you ever been talking to someone and you notice that their eyes start glazing over, they look at their watch or worse still they appear to be falling asleep? Perhaps they looked at you and nodded in understanding and then went on to do completely the opposite?

Many people think that they are good communicators, but sometimes wonder why other people haven’t understood or why they failed to carry out the desired action “communicated”. Effective communication is a skill that can be learnt. This one hours lecture will highlight and teach skills that can be immediately used to make sure when you talk people will listen!

 How to Impress 
in 7 seconds 
 

Psychologists suggest that within the first 7 seconds of meeting someone will make seven major decisions about that person based on our first impressions.

For example, how trustworthy this new friend might be, can be determined in this brief encounter, because first impressions tend to be the most believable, we must use those 7 seconds wisely.

How we present ourselves is an important part of our overall communication. This talk aims to help you make the most of the first impressions and help you improve your initial contact, thus enhancing relationships and making sure you present yourself in the best possible way. An informative and fun one-hour lecture.
