Your own human emotion regulation system can either help or hinder your attempts to communicate. Learn how to calm yourself so that you consciously send “friend”
not “foe” signals to colleagues via your own biological systems, thereby supporting more effective and creative communication.
The proposed idea is to use the “emotion regulation system” as the basis for a session that explores the relationship between the signals we send to others and the emotional state we put them in. Rather than inadvertently sending “foe” signals that will spark the “threat system,” participants learn to consciously send “friend” signals that spark the “sooth system.”
Communication soft skills will also be applied in this session with both a writing and a practice component.
ROOM SET UP: Small semi-circles of eight chairs, no tables. Number of participants: 30 to 40.
