What we're about

All of the meetups for this group will take place at the local Church of Scientology, Mission of San Jose, where I am a volunteer staff member. Members of all religions are welcome. We don’t expect you to change your religion or beliefs. And if you’re not religious at all, that’s fine as well. We’re wide open.

I am Leslie, and I am the organizer for this meetup group. I used to be terrible at communication. I was quite shy. I used to get very nervous, blush and stumble over my words — I was generally quite bad at expressing myself; but nowadays I talk to people a lot, I express myself easily, and I speak in front of groups regularly. This change in my ability to communicate didn't just happen. I did a lot of communication training to improve my skills. Through my training, I have realized that a big reason people have a hard time with communication is because they never really learned how. You see, our parents taught us how to talk, but COMMUNICATION is not the same thing as talking, and that's basically the problem. Knowing how to talk is only ONE PART of communication. It's like we never went past the first lesson, and we are missing lessons 2, 3, and 4, so we can't quite perform when life situations call on us to communicate. As a result, people suffer socially, professionally, and in personal relationships, due to this lack of communication skills.

That's what this group is all about. The members will get together to practice the exact techniques that have successfully helped people improve communication. Don't worry, the training we do will not be hard on you, and it won’t put you on the spot. Effective communication is easier than you might think. If you end up making friends or decide to get together with the other members of this group, that's a bonus.

I'll try to schedule frequent meetups. If you are interested, join this group. If you have any questions, call me at (831) 704-6784.

[Online] Getting over communication obstacles

Online event

Communication isn't always easy. I am someone who was once quite uncomfortable sharing my thoughts openly with others. I had all sorts of physical discomfort whenever I was put on the spot. But then, I was introduced to some very helpful tools which have made it possible for me to speak up whenever I need or want to--even in stressful or emotional situations. And, now there's a way to share this information with you online. I hope you'll join me for this informative meetup! Feel free to message me if you have any questions, Leslie
