The 4 Commitments
         
   

Ever wonder what makes for effective communication?

Good communication, the kind that gets results and also builds relationships, is about more than just “intentions” and “techniques”. It is based on a set of underlying attitudes and approaches that are the foundation of Effective Communication.

These underlying principles are so powerful that applying them, even in the absence of any other advanced skills, dramatically improves conversations and relationships. It also helps prevent some of the communication mistakes that can cause hurt and undermine relationships.

In “The Four Commitments” you will learn four such key principles, and the basic skills that derive directly from them. Each one consists of a “Do” and a “Don’t”. Scroll down for the outline.
