  3. If we have a commitment to Equality and we value Diversity – it will show in our communication. We will: • Respect others and value the richness that difference brings • Recognise that others have different life experiences and see life / the world differently • Acknowledge that other people legitimately hold different Values and Beliefs • Take responsibility for ourselves – our intention, our actions and the consequences • Be prepared to adjust our communications • Not be ‘a bystander’ where there is difference and conflict Staff Conference 1/5/08

  4. Exercise on conflict- Keep your attention in the present • We need to ensure that we have as much information as possible when we respond to others • Who says and does what, where, when, how, (why)? • Clear non-judgemental observations: • Clarify the mind • Open connection • Establish shared ground • Help to sift interpretations • Is part of taking responsibility Staff Conference 1/5/08

  10. Rapport • To aid communication we ‘mirror’ and ‘match’ the other person - using posture, body language, gestures, language, speaking tone and pace, breathing, eye contact • We ‘pace’ to engage the other person • We ‘lead’ to change communication or the emotional state of others • We ‘mismatch’ - to interrupt / end communication Staff Conference 1/5/08

  11. Listening Active listening What can make it difficult for us to listen actively: • Speed of thought • Most people talk at 125 words while our brains can process 800 words in this time. The brain often searches for some activity to occupy it • Distractions • Environmental barriers and distractions • The way the other person speaks • Voice, language, structural challenges • Our processing • Word triggers, preconceptions, resistance, • Our interruptions Staff Conference 1/5/08

  12. Listening • People who really listen reflect upon the content of the message and search for meaning. They suspend judgment while they: • listen through the words for the central ideas • notice what is not being said • mentally summarise what the person has been saying • consider the evidence presented by the speaker • try to understand the central point of the argument • observe the non-verbal communication of the speaker in order to get a better understanding of the total message • give signals to show that they are listening Staff Conference 1/5/08

  13. Questions which promote understanding for the other person Have you ever…….. I wonder if you…….. Do you ever think…… Why do you……………………. How important is………… How does that fit with…..

  15. The 5 R technique Making Requests • Reflect • Take time to consider your motives and to choose your approach • Report • Say exactly what is happening - be specific and objective • Relate • Relate the effects of the behavior and the emotional impact on you • Request • Request in concrete terms what you need to be different • Results • Spell out the positive consequences of the change being made Staff Conference 1/5/08

  16. Requests Making Requests • Requests involve asking others to do / not do something and are strategies to meet our needs • Requests are more likely to be met if they: • Are clear / unambiguous • Are specific • Offer a choice / indicate flexibility • Are positive (do’s not don’ts) • Are do-able • Are not presented as a demand Staff Conference 1/5/08

  17. Making Requests language for requests • I need…. • I would like….. • It would help me…. • Would you be prepared to… • I want….. • It is important for me to …… • I really find it helpful when…. • I enjoy….. • I value….. • I appreciate…….. • I feel energised when…. • Your own ?
