The Art of Connection and Communication: How to Listen and be Heard

Lying at the heart of all relationships — personal, social, professional, political — is communication. The manner in which spouses, parents and children, neighbors, friends, co-workers, employers, employees, communities and nations speak and listen (or don’t) to each other carries the key to thriving, lasting, and healthy connections. Even when there is concern and love between different people or groups, very often they are lacking the tools to properly express their In effect then, mastering the art of communication is the defining blueprint that leads to family, domestic, national and global peace, harmony, and tranquility. Please join Rabbi Jacobson in this important, fundamental talk on the secret to true and effective communication. Discover that communicating is more about connecting and building trust than it is about expressing thoughts; speaking is more about listening than about voicing opinions; more about empathy than data; and the most successful way to be heard is to listen. Remember, people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.
