How to communicate authentically and experience greater connection

Why do you think we communicate?  Think about that for a moment.

According to Tony Robbins, we communicate in order to feel good.  One of the paths for feeling good  is connecting deeply with other human beings.  I also want to challenge you to think: When was the last time you experienced great connection with someone else because of how you communicated?  Often, as people communicate I see exchange of ideas, judgements, advice, fix-it, etc.  But do we really understand the other person? More importantly, does the other person truly feel understood and communicated with?

I will share ideas with you that I use with my patients and in my communication that will help you experience greater connection.  Most of these ideas are based on the book nonviolent communication and have learned in the courses on communication.


I hope you walk out of this talk feeling enriched and experience greater connection.  According to Brene Brown "Connection is what we are here for and it is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives".  So, if connection is that important then let's commit some time and energy to this important topic.

I look forward to see you all!

    Syed's presentation was excellent:) I was able to immediately put into practice the concepts he demonstrated. I hope there will be more coming soon.
