Are Your Relationships Important to You?
Mindfulness is about staying in the present. Not thinking about the past, not thinking about the future.
Mindfulness is about being present.
But how do you do that?
Learn how to stay in the present when talking with another person.
Stay in the present. I know you're busy but really, if you invest
just 5 minutes a day in the Comfort of your home or office you can transform your life with Mindful Communication.
Effective listening skills (i.e. staying present in a conversation) determines the quality of your relationships with family, friends, and work colleagues and ultimately, your happiness.
Effective listening has three essential ingredients, awareness, accountability and action.
Have you noticed that you have plenty of time to think about other things even while you are listening to someone?
These thoughts prevent you from staying present when speaking with another person.
You have to want the relationship to work.
Very often relationships end in divorce when they don't need to.
Deal with disappointments before they become emotional hot-spots and you can reduce conflict.
Relationships are hard work It's hard to listen to others because we speak at 120 words a minute but your brain can process 400 to 800 words a minute.
This gap is filled with thoughts that prevent us from listening.
about Alan Cox
Life experience plus research
I left school and went to the university of life. I learned fast and from first-hand experience. The film and television industry is a cut-throat environment.
Working on thousands of TV commercials, TV documentaries and corporate videos I know what works. Now I wanted to know why it worked.
In 1994 I learned Deep Structure Listening from an American Psychotherapist.
I learned about the incredible power of the unconscious mind. I learned how our unconscious emotional state controls how we react and behave.
I learned how to listen between the lines.
I learned how to ask the right question at the right time.
Do your relationships give your life meaning?
Relationships are where we are accepted for who we are.
In my opinion a basic human need is for relationships that give us security, intimacy, and belonging.
The skills in this module show you how to reduce conflict by gaining more clarity in your interpersonal communication, how you can listen beyond the obvious to others and yourself that result in greater self-awareness and confidence building rich lasting meaningful relationships.

Great tips for businesses!
For business, the information in the 'Departure Lounge' videos is invaluable.
Imagine being able to 'hear' and 'see' the signs that your most indispensable employee is thinking of resigning or your best customer is about to take their business elsewhere is invaluable.
As a Mum and business owner I love the way Alan describes concepts that can be quite complex and involved in a way that is practical and easy to understand.
He cuts through the jargon making it easy to apply the skills in everyday life.
The Mindful Communication course has changed the way I listen.

I have never heard communication described so simply. Bye the way, some of the information Alan provides was new to me.
