Alan Cox Bio - Instructor Mindful Communication
Your car won't start. It's frustrating, and you're late for a meeting.
So, you call your mechanic. “Can you fix my car this afternoon? I have a full day of appointments tomorrow, and I need it.”
What is your mechanic going to say? That's right. “What's wrong with it?”
Before he can fix it, he has to know what is broken.
That is the same as interpersonal communication. 90% of people think they’re good listeners. The trouble is...
We Don't Know What We Don't Know.
The Mindful Communication Course explores what and why interpersonal communication breaks down and them, with The Art of Transformative Listening, we give you the skills to prevent relationship breakdown and create deeper more meaningful connections with people in your circle
Where it all began
40+ years in the television and corporate video industry
The only part of school I liked and was good at was in English and precise. This was a skill that would develop into a career and business editing television commercials, documentaries and corporate videos.
In the 90s I was invited to attend a course in ‘Deep Structure Listening’ by psychologist Dr John Savage. John gave me a gift that changed my life.
It wasn’t an overnight flash of inspiration that inspired me but rather a slow dawning and gradual understanding as I read about interpersonal communication.
When it came to videos and TV commercials, I knew what worked. Now I wanted to know why they worked.
