Working with people in groups, sharing experiences and questions during classes, doing group assignments is challenging for everybody. In such an international university such as WUR, many different ways of working and thinking come together. This might add to the challenge, and it can also broaden our perspectives and even enhance the result.
Would you like to know how to take the best from yourself and your teammates so you can have an optimal result in group works?
Accepting ourselves and others and finding common ground is key.
Would you like to know how to communicate better in a setting where people from different cultures are present?
Are you interested in how Mindfulness and compassion can help you listen to other people in a more effective way and judge (yourself and others) less?
We invite you to take part in these sessions, where you will learn that working in a group can be an opportunity for self-development (and not only a source of stress) by:
- Learning the basics of non-violent communication
- Practicing mindful communication and deep listening
- Working in a group: acknowledging the differences, looking for the common ground
- Group stress: share your difficulties, find your strengths
