Listening to people requires more than communication skills. It requires an attitude, or general spirit, of honoring and seeking each individual's perspective. It can be thought of as a genuine interest in getting to know people. How we talk to people makes a big difference. Traditionally we focus on content - the what of communication. Typically we pay very little attention to how we say things. Yet how we communicate with others is as important, if not more so, as what we are trying to say. How we communicate affects how people feel, and this affects the choices they make. You will learn The key concepts and core skills that are helpful in Mindful Communication.

Self-confidence: how do you get it and how do you keep it? It is the mark of a champion. That secret ingredient that all great athletes seem to possess, regardless of what level they compete at. Self-confidence is that intangible factor that keeps an athlete working hard regardless of how many times he/she may fail or how many obstacles get thrown in his/her path. Self-confidence can give an average athlete the courage and focus to defeat a stronger opponent. Self-confidence can motivate you to attempt and accomplish the impossible. Likewise, lacking self-confidence, an athlete will consistently perform way below their potential. Low self-confidence can kill an athlete's enjoyment of the sport and turn him/her into a dropout statistic. Self-confidence: how do you get it and how do you keep it? I will tell you!
