Our Relationship with Money

Money plays a significant role in our lives and impacts our relationships and personal well-being in both positive and negative ways.  It evokes various thoughts and potentially strong feelings, and is the driving force for many of our behaviors.

This training will help you explore your personal relationship with money and the impact it has on your daily life and relationships.  We’ll discuss perspectives on money management, identify strategies for addressing concerns related to finances and learn about resources that can help you improve your relationship with money.

Effective Communication & Effective Listening

Communication is an essential element for building effective teams in the workplace.  However, communication can be difficult because it involves both a sender and receiver of information who have different life experiences, and approaches in communication. Both parties must be invested and open for effective communication to take place.

This training will help you gain strategies for sending and receiving information, learn the skill of ‘Reflective Listening’, and understand responses and assumptions that inhibit good communication.  The more you understand about these vital elements related to communication, the more confident and effective you’ll be with your communication exchanges.
