Communication: Its Art & Soul

In Jewish philosophy, communication is more than just a tool: it is who we are. Humans are defined as communicative beings with a communicative soul, and aligning ourselves with this soul is our raison d’être.

 

In Communication: Its Art and Soul, we contrast Jewish thought with scientific discovery to unearth the essence of communication, and how to utilize its powers to better ourselves, our relationships, and all of society.

Lesson 1 The Kabbalah of Human Communication

 

What is communication? exploring mystical references to human communication to get to the essence of what communication is all about, why it is the stuff relationships are made of, and what your communication style reveals about you as a person.

 

Lesson 2 Opening Up to New Perspectives

 

Why is it so hard to listen to others? Is there more to be gained from listening, then just opening ourselves up to new viewpoints? What deeper perspectives would we have never considered, had we not opened ourselves up to listening? Communication is about learning how to listen.

 

Lesson 3 The Power of Words

 

What makes silence golden? Why are well-timed words so powerfully constructive, and ill-timed words are so fatally destructive? What makes words so powerful? This lesson considers how our words impact people’s impressions & how we can learn to unleash the power of words discerningly.

 

Lesson 4 Peripherals Matters

 

Simple messages are often misconstrued in ways we could never predict. Peripherals to speech such as tone, body language, and context can ruin our message, making it sound like static noise. How to ensure the listener’s takeaway is the same as the one we intended to communicate.

 

Lesson 5 Influence

 

Communication is the tool of great leaders and a powerful way to influence. Is communication meant for self-expression, or do we carry a responsibility to utilize its power to influence others? How do we know when we are being influential, and when we are just projecting our insecurities?

 

Lesson 6 Healthy Conflict - and Resolution

 

Conflict isn’t always a bad thing. In adversarial collaboration, conflict broadens horizons to reveal more profound truths. What can we learn from the argumentative style of Talmud study, to shift from an ego-driven, win-lose mentality to one which both parties win and creates a better society?
