‘Communicating with Influence’ is a show about communication skills to improve the quality of relationships. It centers on the concept of ‘Validation’ i.e. to empathize with and accept the feelings of others and of ourselves. Through this process, we empower and influence our relationships. These are applicable to all types of relationships that we experience, including relationships such as parent-child, husband-wife employee-employer, etc.
‘Communicating with Influence’ aims to help raise awareness about the role of emotions, how to communicate them and how it impacts our relationships. The objective of this show is to apply the knowledge of psychology on effective communication so that we may have healthy relationships.
