Training for anyone who has moved to another country or whose parents have moved to another country.
Do you sometimes feel that people don’t understand you or that you don’t understand others?
This is our focus during the Training Effective communication.
This is a 1-on-1 training for anyone who has moved to another country or whose parents have moved to another country.
You do your best to contribute: to your family and at work. You seem to be doing alright. But if you are completely honest, you regularly feel that people don’t understand you or that you don’t understand others.
You cannot really pinpoint why you feel this way. You speak the language to a sufficient or even excellent degree. You are fully aware of how people interact with each other here.
You seem to have found your own way of dealing with your feelings of not belonging. You are getting along fine, yet at the same time you feel left out and can’t seem to break certain communication patterns. You miss the joy of really joining in and belonging.
Would you like to break that negative circle? Then this training is for you.
The training covers the following topics:
- Communication skills
- The relationship between communication and cultures
- The pitfalls and qualities of your cultures
- Your response to moments of unease
- Developing an alternative for your current communication strategies
You will receive enlightening information and will work with different methods. You gain more insight in yourself, creating room to grow.
The process was extremely pleasant and supportive. I have discovered and broken deeply rooted patterns, as a person and as a professional.
I really had to work on myself. It was very useful to specifically look at my culture. I have come to realise that culture has ‘coloured’ a lot of my actions. Whenever I ignore emotions, I start to compensate. Particularly in ways that are closest to me, based on my culture.
It has been extremely beneficial to experience how much space is created just by responding to emotions. When I do that, I am able to communicate differently and use my culture as an asset. Really enlightening.
I notice a big difference in the communication with my pupils. My actions are more and more based on my inner self and I create a safe environment for and instil trust in my pupils. Interventions are more ‘tailor-made’ now. My work is less strenuous and I get more enjoyment from what I do. I am happy and thankful to Alize for guiding me through this process.
