Understanding People

Each person’s perspective is founded on who they are, some refer to it as character, some call it personality. The starting point of understanding people is to realise and accept that everyone is not like you. Have you ever said something to one person, and received a certain response, then said exactly the same thing to another person, and received a totally different response? The basic reason they respond differently is that people have different characters. You said the same thing, but what they “heard” was not the same. A lack of understanding of ourselves and others can lead to real problems such as tension, disappointment, hurt feelings, unmet expectations and poor communication. This course aims to provide a greater understanding of how to adapt your interpersonal style to effectively communicate with different character types.
