Communication is a natural function within our daily lives, although how we use our language may not receive much day-to-day attention. Poor communication can result in misunderstandings and other associated problems, whereas effective communication can optimise comprehension and give your message more impact and influence.
Effective communication is helpful in every aspect of our lives, whether socially (keeping friends rather than upsetting them), with family (getting your meaning across clearly) and in the workplace! When working with clients, particularly in a hypnotherapy setting, clear communication is essential. Good communication with clients will help them feel at ease, build rapport, reduce any anxiety in the hypnotherapy process and boost their confidence. Skilful communication also helps a client feel in control and part of the therapy process, which aids collaborative working. Beyond selection of the words that you say, how you say (and write) those words are also important. This means, as well as positively influencing clients, when you begin communicating more effectively, you’ll be better able to influence your prospective clients and volunteers, thereby expanding your earning potential, getting more clients, securing more leads and making more money. Great communication really does pay off!
This ‘Improve your communication’ training course, presented by Dr Kate Beaven-Marks, has been designed for anyone who wishes to develop their communication skills. Hypnotherapists, talking therapists, sports hypnotists, stage hypnotists, and those working in business, music, the arts or with performers (as well as many others) will benefit from understanding how to optimise communication effectiveness and clarity of message. It could also be that you looked at this ‘Improve your communication’ training course from a self-development perspective as you are interested in developing more effective communication in your day-to-day life. Or you may wish to use the wide range of approaches in this training course for both personal and professional development. Whether you are a complete novice or are an experienced practitioner, you will be able to use the concepts within this training course to help you communicate better with your clients, colleagues, friends, family and everyone else!
Here’s a breakdown of everything that’s included in this communication training course…
In this section, we start by exploring what communication is and how we develop and use the different aspects of our language. We then look at how we can change our language and how quick that change can be. Topics covered here include:
6-stage language change process
The field analogy
In this section, you’re going to learn about the importance and benefits of being focused and present in the conversation. The skills you’ll learn will help you to optimise the extent of information you are working with and, as a result, be better able to respond and engage whoever you’re communicating with. As well as why you need to be present and the benefits presentness gives you, you’ll also get a whole bunch of tips about how you can stay present and focused in any conversation.
In this section, we start by recognising that our language leads to our (and others) experience of life. We then consider what focused language is and why it is beneficial to consider focusing our language, both in terms of the unhelpful impact of negative language and the benefits of positive language. You’ll also learn about how to use your voice positively, and about the communication benefits of telling stories. The section concludes with a 5-step process for writing positive, influential stories. Here’s a list of everything covered in this section:
Observing unhelpful phrases
Focusing on the solution
Saying what you want
Negative language in the workplace
3 powerful examples of the impact of negative language
How ‘non’ influences
Recognising positive and negative language
Becoming positive and positive moments
The voice as a powerful communication tool
Structuring your story (5-step plan)
As well as all of the above, you’re also going to discover five key words that you may benefit from avoiding. In everyday language we may naturally use these words, perhaps without any awareness of the negative consequences or influences. You’re going to learn:
How the mind responds to negative words
How to avoid words that create doubt
How to avoid words that ignore or minimise issues
How to avoid demands and how to reduce defensiveness
How to avoid words that generate resistance
In this section you’re going to discover the influence that non-verbal communication and body language can have on your communications and the message that you’re conveying. For instance, first impressions are formed within seconds and are influenced by our instinctive (unconscious) knowledge of reading body language. In this section we’re going to cover:
High stakes situations
Positive state generation
