Communication Series: Using Neutral Language

Emotions run high when issues are near and dear to our hearts. As a listener or facilitator, you can help a speaker by using neutral language AND by summarizing using neutral language. Listen in as our novice facilitator receives coaching on this critical skill.  Think about how you can use this skill with colleagues, in meetings and with family members to guide productive discussions.

This video is the second in a series on using effective communication skills.

Communication Series: Open-Ended Questions



Disagreements can arise in any situation–at home or work. The key to problem solving is listening. And, the key to listening is effective questioning. All types of questions can be helpful when used purposefully. Open-ended questions are most effective at drawing out people’s ideas and concerns when beginning to problem solve. Watch our actors try to communicate in this short video above.
