Event details

Coaching psychologists Paula Louise Dixon and Kate Pearlman Shaw help demystify the science of conversations. Join them for a workshop intertwining insights from clinical, coaching and business psychology, as they uncover the positive impact conversations can have in our personal and professional lives.

Paula and Kate will demonstrate how conversations become catalysts for growth, understanding, and shared success, and will encourage you to reflect on your own potential contributions to this positive impact. They’ll share insights tailored for thoughtful reflection, allowing you to deepen your understanding of the psychological dynamics at play in your communication styles.

Come along and reflect on your own communication style, and take away insights you can incorporate into your own conversational approach.

This event will take place live on Zoom Webinar. You will receive a link to join a couple of days before the event and a reminder an hour before. During the event, you can ask questions via a Q&A function, but audience cameras and microphones will remain muted throughout.
