We hear everything, but do we really listen? Even though listening is key to communication, few of us are taught how to listen effectively. Active listening builds effective team relationships that improve effectiveness at work. Do your talents send and receive messages effectively?



Listening Skills Workshop Overview


The hearing is a sensory experience that provides meaning on different levels. Listening is a voluntary activity, one where we can decide how we engage in it. As for many soft skills, listening skills can be developed. There is no quick fix, it will require focus, discipline and the willingness to learn and improve. When joining the listening skills workshop, you will only need a clear intention and we will help you develop your ability to concentrate on the speaker's words to discern what is being communicated on multiple levels. In this workshop, participants will develop skills that will help them create positive relationships with colleagues, customers and other stakeholders.
