Effective Communication

Home » Effective Communication

‘When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new.’

At Contribute we consider that communication skills are essential to our performance and success. Communication is central to all our interpersonal interactions. It is so ubiquitous that it is often overlooked in the learning and development planning in organisations. The development of communication skills is the simplest way to affect the connection with all stakeholders. Our training helps with communicating clearly, directly and with attention to yourself and others.

The cornerstone of our communication work is the Nonviolent Communication programme of the clinical psychologist Marshall Rosenberg.

Often we find that internal communication, the “critical inner voice”, can be the biggest determinant of our performance and at Contribute we can show you how to silence the inner critic through our Trigger Resolution Program.
