Lesson 13: Learning to Be Your Best as a Communicator
Circle: How does stress affect your breathing? What happens to your communication when you are in the middle of a trigger situation?
Skill Introduction: Three Modes of Communication
Agressive: loud, confronts other people, gets in their faces or doesn’t take into account what the other person is doing at the moment
Passive: Quiet, meek, look nervous, hesitant to speak up
Assertive: speak with confidence, stand or sit up straight, make appropriate eye contact, don’t interrupt others, say what we want to say, use a tone of voice that is strong but not loud (most effective form of communication) This helps others truly listen to us and not just hear us. Use the acronym BEST: Body Language, Eye Contact, Speech, Tone of Voice.
Which communication style is most beneficial and effective in highly emotional situations?
