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. You can be of any religion to come. You are not expected to change your religion here. All beliefs are respected.
I am Leslie, and I am the Organizer for this meetup group. I used to be terrible at communication. 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 basically the reason people have a hard time with communication is because they haven't been trained or they were incorrectly trained. 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 stopped training after 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 even 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 too hard on you, or put you on the spot. Correct communication results in mutual understanding, which is very beautiful and very enjoyable. If you end up making friends or decide to meet up more with the 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.
