What you will learn:
AK walks employees through his unbranded workshop, showcasing the incredible complexity of each individual human being.
Our ability to influence is directly correlated to our ability to communicate effectively. The ability to communicate effectively is a skillset we must continually develop to improve our interpersonal relationships and even emotional intelligence.
Now, we can join toastmasters or proactively work on sparking up conversations with random strangers, but that will only take us so far. To really grow our interpersonal muscles, we must first develop our introspective communication muscles. That may sound counter-intuitive, you're thinking? How can I become a stronger communicator by going inward?
Think of it like shooting a bow and arrow. The more you pull the strings on the bow backward, the more power you have to shoot the arrow further. The same is with improving our introspective communication abilities, it actually increases the load, just like the string of a bow, to enhance your ability to communicate interpersonally.
The greater you know the layers that make you who you are, the better it will be for you to build faster rapport, as a result, build stronger connections, build trust faster, as well as increase your influence when used in an empowering way.
This session will take you through an Unbranded process to deepen your introspective communication muscles as well as the framework to teach it to your team.
