You are warmly welcome to join us at the Imagination Club on Wednesday, 23 October at 18h45 for an interactive, experimental workshop on:

Communication Skills – Building Skills across Cultures

By Ruth Friedman

Are you a good communicator?
Are you as good as you think you are?

Does it make a difference when you are talking to someone from a different culture? Do people from different cultures have different ideas about what makes for good communications? How do you read the signals a person is giving out?

How well do you really listen when someone is talking to you? How well do you take in the spoken and unspoken parts of the message?

When you are talking, do you feel that people get what you are saying? Are you aware of the spoken and unspoken messages that you convey?

Come along to the workshop to find out more!

During the workshop we will be exploring these questions, using a series of structured experiential exercises to build our awareness about how we give out and receive messages. Through these exercises, together with a theoretical concept, we will build our ‘sending’ and ‘receiving’ communication skills, to help our communications to become as authentic and genuine as possible.
