Conversations That Make Things Happen

With Justin Wise, PCC

March 24th 2015

Speaking and listening well are behind all human endeavours, and can resolve many difficulties. This workshop will show how you and your clients can develop skill in speaking so that what matters happens.

It turns out – though many of us don’t spot it – that the whole of the human social world is brought about by conversation. It’s because of this that many of the difficulties that our clients face can be resolved by developing a deeper understanding, and more skill, in speaking and listening to others: being able to make powerful requests, understand the nature of promises, and tell the difference between the purpose of different kinds of talking. Another part of it is being able to skillfully respond when things don’t turn out as we’d hoped – when something we thought was agreed didn’t happen, or when we don’t feel able to keep a commitment we’ve made.

 How To Get There:

Address: Webster University, 9 Route de Collex (Back entrance, close to the train station GENTHOD-BELLEVUE), 1293 Bellevue.
Attendees should park on the Parking Sud which is the closest to the train tracks/lake.
