What do you see? Communicating with those that just don't see it. - Lois Greisen
People have different backgrounds; male or female, north or south, young or old, metro or rural, only child or siblings, and differing nationalities are only a few differences that determine what people see in their minds during a conversation. Differences in mental pictures can cause challenges in understanding. Things that are important to you may not be important to the person or persons you are communicating with and thus can determine whether thy focus on what you are saying. In this session, you will recognize how mental pictures create challenges in interpretation and learn techniques that will help make communicating more effective with those you interact with.
