Neuroscience of Successful Communication
Sat 24 June 2017, 13:00 – 16:00 BST
Has it ever happened to you that you got offended by something another person said? Perhaps you feel without any bad intentions you offended the other person too? What happened next? Both people feeling misunderstood, perhaps angry or sad. Most problems in romantic and working relationships happen because of misunderstandings in communication.
And that is normal - each of us has a very different brain and we see the world differently. Moreover, our brain has a threat response system which is constantly searching for dangers and triggers fight, flight or freeze response once it perceives the danger. In that state each of us becomes emotional, irrational and selfish, thus, good communication is not possible. If you want to learn to avoid these problems and develop successful communication habits, you might want to join this workshop and learn from the neuroscientist (PhD) and life coach Gabija Toleikyte what solutions brain science suggests to that.
In this workshop of Dr. Gabija Toleikyte will discuss:
- Why different conversations trigger different emotions.
- Threat response of the brain - what is possible in that state?
- How to express yourself without triggering threat response of another person.
- What to do if threat response has been triggered in another person?
- How to deal with your own threat response?
- How to listen to another person best?
- Brain activity-based steps to develop best communication habits
Moreover, you will be surrounded by other like-minded people and do fun interactive tasks together.
So why don't join if you want to learn how to express yourself so you are fully understood and appreciated for what you shared and who you are? I look forward to seeing you!
Testimonials of previous workshops/seminars
"I attended Gabi's first workshop in January and was at the point of giving up on my long term goal of becoming a freelance coach and wellbeing expert. After attending the second workshop and having a thirty-minute coaching call with G, not only is my dream now alive again, more importantly, I am making progress towards it with concrete actions. This is thanks to Gabija, whose coaching really works. Thanks Gabija for helping me to keep the dream alive and having fun with it!" - Angelina
