You are in a conversation and think that you've understood everything....only to find out later that you didn't get it at all! Sounds like a perfect case of miscommunication!

If this sounds familiar, then this learning journet is for you! You're going to practice listening, but also paying attention, to what someone is saying nonverbally. Because the words are only a small part of the message. You'll also pratice summarizing what the other person has said to ensure that you've understood them correctly. And of course you're going to get plenty of practice doing this.

Did you understand everything I said?
Then let's get started!

Online: Understanding others

I want to understand other people's emotions and behavior

In reality, our words are only part of our message. More than 70% of our communication is "told" nonverbally in our gestures, posture, behavior, and tone. Understanding body language is therefore very important for understanding others and preventing miscommunication. Understanding people is about good listening skills, being able to read body language, and the art of summarizing. And these skills are exactly what you are going to work on in this learning journey. This way you can avoid miscommunication and get more out of your conversations.
