EAWLC Communication Skills Walk-in Clinic

Personal communication skills coach Eleanor James will be sitting in the clinic, and welcome our audience to ask questions they have when dealing with co-workers or bosses at work, peers or teachers in school, or neighbours, acquaintances, or even strangers on the street. Things like how to make small talk, how to approach people, asking questions, dealing with difficult people, or diffusing situations, and being generous. 

Eleanor will share her expertise, experience, and perspective to help especially immigrants make their own decisions based on a good understanding of the culture, social norms, and customs here, plus maybe some little witty words or doings to ease the situation!

Facilitator Bio

 

After university for a degree in Literature, Eleanor James worked in television production including a series that won three Emmy Awards. That was followed by several executive roles with broadcasters, including ten years spent as a production executive, helping to launch  HGTV and Food Network Canada  In the countless days working with talented yet not necessarily the most agreeable people, Eleanor’s practical know-how with inter-personal communication gained her popularity in the industry and was often admired and studied by young colleagues.  It triggered the start of her coaching career.  She is certified by  The Coaches Training Institute (CTI), and the National Communication Coaching Association of Canada (NCCA).  She is also a Designated Communication Coach/Trainer with NCCA, and a member of the International Coaches Federation (ICF).

 

Message from Eleanor:

 

Inter-personal communication means how we speak to each other. We’ve all been spoken to with harsh words from others, and perhaps done it ourselves. We all know what it feels like: that it’s hurtful, harmful to relationships, and damaging to loyalty and productivity. It’s a perfect example of unskilled inter-personal communication and it’s unnecessary and bad for business. The importance is to bring clear understanding of the value of skillful personal communications, at work, at home, and in the community. There’s a better way and all it takes is the willingness to polish the skills. “Becoming skillful with your interpersonal communications makes life easier. I’m not kidding about that.”

 

Professionals or home-makers, grown-ups, or young students, if you have a personal communication question or problem to tackle, this will be a good place to seek advice.  We encourage you to frame your questions beforehand in a concise manner with necessary details but without disclosing personal information, and bring them to the clinic to make the most out of the consultation time.  Please note we will not do any recordings.  However, the clinic is open to the public, and all participants will get to listen to the questions and answers. 

You are also welcome to send your questions to us at info@eawlc.org, and we can ask Eleanor on your behalf while not disclosing your identity.  Depending on the time, questions may or may not be taken at the clinic.

 

For inquiries, please send email to: info@eawlc.org

EAWLC  交流技巧免预约问诊

 

工作中如何与同事、老板沟通?

学习中如何与同学、老师交流?

生活中如何与街坊邻居、亲朋好友、甚或街头偶遇的陌生人打交道?

怎样和人来点闲谈碎语?怎样跟人打开话匣子?怎样向人提出问题?怎样与不好打交道的人交谈?怎样在闲散的情境下讲话?怎样友好厚道地传达自己的讯息?

 

个人交流技巧教练Eleanor James将在东西联学社的聊天室里,现场回答听众提问,帮助我们在深入了解本地文化、社会风俗和规则的基础上,佐以少许机智幽默的配方,找到适合自己的应答话语、交流方式。

 

教练简介:

 

大学本科为文学专业,毕业后从事电视剧制作,包括一部获三项艾米奖的电视连续剧。之后在多家广播公司任执行职务,10年电视节目制作执行官,帮助成立HGTV和Food Network Canada。在与许多才华横溢但未必懂得如何与人相处的人合作的过程中,Eleanor积累了许多人际交流沟通的实践经验,为她在业界获得良好口碑,并成为年青同事见贤思齐的榜样。这也成为她的人际交流技巧教练的职业生涯的起点。

 

Eleanor是教练协会(CTI)和加拿大交流教练协会(NCCA)的持牌教练,NCCA的指定交流教练,国际教练联盟(ICF)的成员。

 

Eleanor James的话:

 

人际交流即指我们彼此之间如何言谈说话。我们都经历过来自别人的不愉快的话,也许我们自己也说过这样的话。我们都知道那是怎样一种感觉。那是对人际关系的伤害和毁损,对忠诚与成效的破坏。这是缺乏技巧的人际交流的典型案例。毫无必要且有损事功。我们需要重视工作、家庭和社区中的富有技巧的个人交流的价值。我们能做得更好,只要你愿意来研习和练习技巧。“拥有娴熟的人际交流技巧,让你的生活更游刃有余。”

 

无论您是在职还是居家,成人还是学生,如果有个人交流问题或困难,都欢迎前来寻求建议。请提前准备好有必要细节但不透露个人信息的问题,以便能够最有效地利用咨询时间。请注意:本活动为公开活动,所有参与者都可以听到问题和回答。我们不会有任何录音录像。

 

也可将问题发送到info@eawlc.org。我们在不透露您的身份的情况下代为提问。由于时间有限,问诊可能不会顾全到所有问题。
