A great deal of conversation takes place “between the lines.” Much of the time, we are implying opinions and feelings – often without knowing it.  By understanding the insinuations behind what you and others are saying, your ability to produce better results, both personally and at work, will improve. By exploring what’s known as metamessages in this seminar, you will learn:

  • How to hear the hidden implications in what other people are saying
  • How to hear the hidden implications in what you have been saying, unintentionally leading to tension or conflict
  • How to understand that the implications are the truth behind the spoken words
  • How this entirely new and rarely understood skill in listening and speaking can improve your relationships and reduce tension, conflicts, and arguments
  • How your personal growth and self-awareness, and ability to maintain good relationships, can be greatly enhanced by understanding metamessages
