What is Identify Inner Dialog?

As a communication strategist, Diana founded the Identify Inner-Dialog Method  for her coaching and consulting practice. Identify Method pinpoints a persons' beliefs, impressions, judgements and intentions.

For the past decade, she teaches her clients how to remove unspoken negative impressions, survey pre-conceived conclusions and step into a space of exploration, self wisdom and self care. This method teaches how to respond in responsible ways and how to successfully manage life and achieve lasting results.

Her coaching practice offers family peer support, life choices and direction, relationships and communication, recovery and wellness, parenting strategies, and mental health education. 

"Knowing oneself is an inner experience of meaningful thoughts, purposeful action and the ability to take full responsibility for one's life every day. Change in life is natural and can be less stressful with the right communication strategies that serve our lives in productive and supportive ways." ~ Diana

What is Compassionate Communication?

Diana Kendros, founder, coach and executive director of the Hope for Life Organization teaches about Compassionate Communication and how it is based on the principles of nonviolence, the natural state of compassion when no violence is present in the heart. The information is based on the communication process developed by the late Marshall Rosenberg and the Center of Non-Violent Communication.

Resentment, fear, anger and unmet needs are some of the main factors in feeling a lack of compassion and conflict in communication. People who learn and practice Compassionate Communication have found greater authenticity in their communication, increased understanding, deepening connection, and conflict resolution.

In this workshop, Diana will combine both Compassionate Communication principles along with her Identify Inner Dialog (see below) strategies and will give a range of communication examples which show the dramatic difference in how we listen and respond. She will include real-life situations, demonstrate role-playing and engage in open discussion.

Participants receive a Communication Toolkit upon completion of the workshop via email.

Great for parents, couples, managers, team leaders and anyone who

wants to improve their communication lifestyle.
