One event on May 26, 2021 at 10:00 am
How many times have you shared information with someone in poverty and thought you were perfectly clear, but they ask the the same questions or do not follow through with your instructions? Much of the misunderstanding is related to the vocabulary we use, our examples, and our styles of sharing information. In this interactive second module of our How Are the Children?: Understanding Poverty series, participants will explore tools that will help you to see and hear the perspectives of others. You will also examine how your communication style and perceptions can inhibit or enhance relationships that improve the lives of children and families.
Who should attend: All staff. Participants will benefit most if they are also able to attend the first modlue in this series, Breaking the Iron Cage.
- Explore how different life experiences impact communication styles
- Gain a framework for improving communication and relationship skills
- Obtain concrete tools for building stronger relationships and communicating more effectively with those who live in the crisis of poverty.
