This communication and assertiveness video can teach you the skills that are essential to develop and keep close and intimate relationships, and your business relationships as well, by teaching the elements of effective conflict resolution. Anyone can learn to communicate better. With practice, you can choose the right words for every situation. The single most important predictor of a lasting relationship is the ability to clearly and calmly listen to another person, have empathy for that person, and to be able to negotiate and compromise in order to resolve problems. Romantic love is destroyed by constant and senseless fighting without resolution. This conflict resolution psychology video teaches those skills and effective methods for creating clear and respectful exchanges. The world is increasingly intertwined and therefore it is important in the business world, government, and your personal life to be able to really understand what someone is saying and to be able to read their body language to effectively communicate and get things accomplished. Make the speaker feel heard and understood, which can help build a stronger, deeper connection between you. Talking about important issues does not have to be scary and does not have to result in fighting.

He relates in a clear, concise manner, discussing boundaries and the learned behavior of what was modeled for us in our family system. Jef's communication skills are indeed outstanding, as this DVD clearly illustrates.
