Communication for Highly Sensitive People:

How to Create Understanding & Collaboration

Highly Sensitive People Meetup – Thurs April 26, 2012

As highly sensitive people, arrangements that work for our less sensitive colleagues and friends don’t always work for us.

So it is crucial to know how to communicate about our unique requirements in a way that helps other people really “get it”, and be willing to collaborate with us to find strategies that work for everyone.

It’s also important that the approaches we use strengthen our relationships with the people we communicate with – so we don’t build resistance over time that will make it more difficult to get our needs met in future.

Come to this free event and learn ways to:

  • Get others to really hear & understand what you need
  • Use “No” & objections as stepping stones rather than barriers
  • Make requests in ways that strengthen relationships
