Communication Foundations Part 2: The Power of Emotion

Communication Foundations Part 2: The Power of Emotion

The Foundations of Communication form the first part in a series of modules covering different aspects of effective communication.

The aim of this module is to provide you with knowledge and an understanding of communication foundations, how they shape communication and how to recognise them in yourself and others. This is part 2 of a 2 part module that will guide you through the two essential elements that form those robust foundations.

Part 1: What Is Important To Us (Values, Beliefs, Needs and Wants)
Part 2: The Power of Emotion

Emotion is at work all of the time, albeit we seldom notice unless it changes or it is heightened. Emotion is behind the way we feel, the decisions we make, the words we say and the way we say them. It also influences non verbal language, impacts on how we hear and what we listen for. In summary, recognising and understanding emotion is an essential foundation of communication and it is important to pay attention to emotion if you wish to become a skilled communicator.

By completing Parts 1 and 2 of this module and putting your knowledge into practice, you will have a solid and reliable platform to develop every other element of communication.

This is part 1 of a 2 part module that will guide you through the two essential elements that form those robust foundations.

Part 1 – What Is Important To Us – Values, Beliefs, Needs and Wants

Part 2 – The Power of Emotion

Communication foundations are seldom taught and if we consider how our communication evolves from childhood to adulthood we shouldn’t be a surprise to learn that we often unintentionally miscommunicate because the foundations are not fully realised.  Once the foundations are understood, every other element of communication makes sense.  Each element connects and sits firmly on the foundations so it is important that Parts 1 and 2 of this module are completed before any other communication module.

Science of Fat Loss part 1: Impact of NEAT and metabolism on weight and body fat regulation

Science of Fat Loss part 1: Impact of NEAT and metabolism on weight and body fat regulation

During this course you will look into the differences in energy expenditure between people who have been obese and lost weight (reduced obese) and those who have not had a similar weight change. In addition you will understand more of the science in relation to the impact of Non Exercise Thermogenesis (NEAT) and its role in weight loss and maintenance.
