How to influence and motivate other people in your life
The first step is knowing how to make other people feel understood. Being understood is important for all humans beings. For some personalities - maybe not you - but maybe your spouse, kids or colleagues, it's also about feeling seen and validated. When that happens, they're more engaged and productive.
Without this basic keystone, relationships seem tense and it's harder to relax. It can be more challenging to be your true self around others. When communication falls apart, we might shut down, walk away, or say something we regret. Or worse for you, hold it inside to fester and breed resentment.
But how do we successfully voice the concerns we have buried? And is it even possible to repair after sharp words have been exchanged?
In Transforming Communications™, we treat relationships as being no different than anything else in life: it's about learning some new skills which are backed by research.
When you think about it, most people just pick up communication skills unconsciously from parents and family. As children, the adults that spoke to us might have been stressed or dealing with trauma. We might have heard negative language or tense voices - and that's becomes our "default setting".
Perhaps people did not speak to us, or listen to us in a way that suited our personality. They might have had good intentions - but how did their words land in our mind, body and heart? Did they talk to us and listen to us in a way that made us feel understood - and loved for who we are, not for who they wanted us to be?
It can feel hopeless sometimes. But, there are skills that can help to turn this around. Skills which have been modelled off people who are in happier long term relationships and who seem to repair from conflict in a way that feels better and more empowering.
It is never too late to start learning these skills.
Step by step we look at:
how to talk in a way that honours your own boundaries, whilst maintaining goodwill
how to let go of 'compromise' in favour of genuine win-win negotiation
researched ways to create lasting and fulfilling romantic relationships
steps to resolve arguments more peacefully
how to be both kind and strong,
how to help others so that they feel better - not worse.
ways of not just dealing with conflict, but increasing understanding & positive connection
The presentation of this course applies to both workplace/business relationships as well as being extremely useful for couples, families and parents. It can greatly benefit your friendships as well.
I love this course because you get the skills to voice your needs to others and follow your dreams - rather than being afraid of what others will think.

What do graduates say?
"Very valuable, and life changing."

[I value the] sense of calmness and feel I have tools to deal with conflict situations."

- Shona, Whangarei
"At all times [David] was consistent in use of the TC skills, providing a genuine model and enthusiastic support of the skills...
