Description: “YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN A MOMENT AND A FEW SINCERE WORDS CAN HAVE AN IMPACT ON A LIFE”  ~ ZIG ZIGLAR  Premise: Life is all about Relationships (Love God and Love People).  As we get better at communicating, we get better at relationships – healthier, stronger, and more resilient.  Course Objective: This course will engage the student with various types of communication through interactive games, videos, dialogs, and fun.  This class is intended to build confidence in the student so that he or she can engage their surroundings with awareness, care, and effectiveness.  Being able to communicate well opens up doors of opportunity that God sets before us.  Sample of Topics:  “What’s the point?”; Discerning what should be said before saying it; "Reading" a room; Communicating with God; Parents – Talking with my parents; Non-verbal communication; Listening and Asking good questions; “My mouth is moving, but it sounds like it is on repeat.” – Killing the verbal pauses; Social Media – An enhancer of communication or a destroyer?; First Impressions; Timing, Demeanor, and Mode – When should I say this?  How should I say this? What mode should I use (face-to-face? Voice-to-voice? Letter? Text?).  “YOU CAN MAKE MORE FRIENDS IN TWO MONTHS BY BECOMING INTERESTED IN OTHER PEOPLE THAN YOU CAN IN TWO YEARS BY TRYING TO GET OTHER PEOPLE INTERESTED IN YOU” ~ DALE CARNEGIE
