IWA Empowerment Cell Presents


Effective Communication Styles in relationships and conflict resolution strategies

Effective communication is the key to developing and maintaining positive relationships within and outside the family. However in our social as well as intimate relationships we often face the challenges of miscommunication and clash of ideas, which may lead to a conflict or complete communication breakdown. Most of us do not engage in dialogue around conflict – fearing that we may worsen the situation.

Join us for a highly interactive half day workshop on understanding how to overcome this fear…

This interactive workshop will focus on:

  • Problems faced in day to day life vis-à-vis communication
  • Strategies to help deal with conflicts with our near and dear ones

It is not just “what you say”.. but also “ how you say” that matters!

Date : Tuesday, 12th November 2013
Time : 9.30 am – 1.30 pm (followed by potluck lunch)
Venue : Function Room, Pebble Bay, Tanjong Rhu Road
Cost: IWA members $20, Non-Members $30
