In most situations our communication is successful: we feel comfortable with it, understanding
and progress take place: collaboration works, tasks are completed, goals are achieved, and solutions
to problems are found. Nevertheless it happens that people find themselves in situations
with others that they experience as very difficult and challenging, where suddenly the problem is
in the foreground and feelings such as insecurity, anger, disappointment, frustration or powerlessness
impair or even prevent an objective‐constructive approach to the situation.
In this workshop we shed light on the topic of communication from different perspectives, supported
by appropriate models and best practice approaches. Therefore we will integrate case
studies, but also concrete examples and exercises from your current work situation. The goal is
that you together with the other participants will get to know new approaches so that you can further
develop your communication competencies.
