Communicating, Connecting, Caring

Thinking About Your Values

Your communication and relationships capability will be influenced by your own attitudes and values, those held by your team and within the organisation as a whole.

The way you express yourself has a direct impact on the people around you. It can be easy to pay a lot of attention to what you actually say, but you might be less aware of how your non verbal behaviour and underlying values and attitudes are 'speaking' volumes to the person.

Education and experience can help you to develop communication skills but the way your communication is experienced by other people depends hugely on what you say, how you say it and your underlying values, belief and attitudes. Together these create the messages you convey in your daily practice.
