2  Make a list of different ways people communicate.

3  Communication skills don’t just happen… You will need to practice!  Communication can start and keep relationships strong  Communication helps people grow closer (shared interests…)  Communication is vital to many areas of your life ( school, work, families, relationships)

4  What is communication?  What is body language and why should I care?  How can I communicate better?  Identify ways of being a good listener  Communicate using “I messages”

5  Communication: The exchange of thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and wants between two or more people.  Good communication is not only about getting a message across successfully, it is also about being able to listen to the messages that you hear.

6 Non Verbal (without words) Tone of Voice How you say something is as important as WHAT you say. Body Language Gestures Facial expressions posture

7  Sometimes verbal and non verbal messages can send two different messages. For that reason, be aware of the non verbal messages you send= MIXED MESSAGES: occur when your words say one thing but your body language says another. (i.e. “sorry” while grinning)  What does that tell the other person? What are some other examples of a mixed message?

8  You Messages: A statement that presents a situation that blames someone else. And usually is aggressive in nature. “You can’t do anything right!”  I Messages- A statement that presents a situation from the speaker’s personal feelings/viewpoint: “ I’m mad because I wanted to work on the project together”
