The Haven Communication Toolkit in Vancouver


Our toolkits are a great introduction to what we do at The Haven.

CommYOUnication. It starts with YOU.

Communication is the key to great relationships whether at home or at work.  Communicating should be simple.  Say what's on your mind; listen to the other person.  So why can it be such a challenge? How do our best intentions get caught up in spiraling misunderstandings?

The Haven Communication Model is a tool for both learning about yourself and being in relationship with others.  

The first step is to understand your internal dialogue, the inner commentary that tries to make sense of the world.  Understanding yourself better is the first step to improving interactions with others.

In this engaging and impactful one-day workshop you will:

  • Unlock your own internal communication code.
  • Recognize and develop your intra-personal and inter-personal communication skills
  • Increase your self-awareness
  • Practice getting really clear on what's up for you and why you want to connect with someone.
  • Practice communicating with others

Join Jennifer and Kathy for a fun and interactive look at how we can trip ourselves up in communication, and how we can do it differently. Discover how becoming more self-aware can turn into better communication with others!
