​Areas to look at

​​​Understanding empathy
Communicating to different personalities
Understanding narcissistic behaviour
​Working with social anxiety

​Understanding empathy
​As Brene Brown so eloquently explains, empathy is our ability to feel with others. Empathy is an essential part of communication skills training  as it allows us to truly listen. It also allows the other person to feel understood.

Communicating to different personalities
​There can be thousands of different personalities who we can meet through our lives. The ability to be able to communicate with people on their own level is essential to be able to connect and gain empathy. This can often require us looking at our own personality to see how we reflect and respond to others.

​Understanding narcissistic behaviour
​Narcissistic behaviour can be an immensely sensitive area for many people if they have had challenges with others. Narcissistic behaviour can cover many different attitudes which can sometimes be abusive.

​Working with social anxiety
​Anxiety is a negative pre-projection of the future created in our imagination.
This image then gets projected on to the world we see which causes a distortion of reality.
Social anxiety is where the imagination projects negative thoughts on to the people around us.
We then see the people around us as distorted negative images causing anxiety

​Conclusion

​Effective communication training requires learning about ourselves as well as others. Sometimes the people we have challenges with are reflecting parts of our own personality we are not aware of.
