  3 Easy Steps All relationships require good communication. Good communication skills do not always solve problems or resolve issues, but without them, seldom are problems or issues resolved. Using a simplified version of Harville Hendrix's Dialogue solves the "I do not know what to say or how to say it" challenge. The Dialogue is a 3-step, practical communication tool teaching how to listen and respond without judgement, whether or not we are in agreement with what is said. Take this workshop if you:   • Have a difficult time communicating, listening or feeling heard • Feel frustrated with yourself when reacting rather than responding • Want to build or rebuild your relationships Achieve real and safe connections in your relationships by following the 3 Easy Steps in dialoguing. It is helpful to register with someone with whom you can practice during and after the workshop. $10 materials fee payable in class.
