Since we spend so much of our time at work, learning how to effectively deal with challenging co-workers, employees, and supervisors is worth our time. Research is demonstrating that communicating with compassion results in more positive outcomes, and decreases stress for all parties involved. Stronger climates of compassionate communication often lead to increased job satisfaction, commitment to the organization, and accountability for work performance.

In this course, we will examine and apply practices of compassion, both verbally and nonverbally, such as demonstrating empathy as boundaries are expressed, and using body language to convey understanding. We will cover how power differences can be managed, and how conflict can be diffused with precision and grace.
