Why be an Enlightened Communicator?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

What does it mean to be enlightened?  The merriam-webster online dictionary  describes “Enlightened” as having a good understanding of a subject.  At Teamology we describe Communication as “the ability to be heard and understood.”

So an Enlightened Communicator is someone who is able to be heard and understood, whist having a good understanding of the common issues that can have an impact on Communication.  I am so passionate about assisting people to become Enlightened Communicators after my own difficulties as a Communicator.

My communication issues began early and only got more difficult as I grew older.  I am a strong personality, which does tend to make it difficult (for others mostly!).  I am an open and honest person and would say what i felt thinking it was being helpful, only to find (much later) that it left most people hurt, deflated and offended.

I had no idea how i came across or that I could possibly be offending people.  It wasn’t until a very painful experience in a ladies bathroom many years later (more not that in a future posting…) that I really understood the impact of my communication on others.

So if you like me, hunger for greater connection with others.  Do you wish you could be really authentic with others and share what is in your heart.  Would love to be able to have a tricky conversation rather than avoid it?  Has someone you love really hurt you and you just can’t seem to tell them about it? Do you struggle to communicate with creation types of people?  Would you love to be able to be more assertive and stand up for yourself or others?  If you are tired of saying “yes” when you mean “no” or “no” when you mean “yes” then perhaps you too hunger to become an Enlightened Communicator.

If that’s the case then stay tuned as together we will explore many of the issues around communication, and share many tips and resources so that together we can get the most out of our relationships, both personally and professionally.

Perhaps you tare wondering why your colleagues won’t approach you or work with you.  You may have even been told to get help. For support and training to learn more about your style and how to get the most out of your relationships visit www.teamology.com.au
