The core of this e⁠-⁠training is the model of the five axioms of the communication theorist Paul Watzlawick. Along the five axioms, participants learn to understand the importance of non-verbal communication, to know the content and relationship level of communication, to understand communication as a sequence of cause and effect, to take into account the analogue and digital level of communication as well as the difference between symmetrical and complementary communication in conversation. On this basis, valuable tips emerge on how to resolve conflicts and optimise client communication.
