Effective Listening for Everyone!

This workshop was formerly titled Are you Listening 

This course is recommended for individuals seeking to develop their communication skills and have more effective conversations, personally or professionally! This fundamental skill will benefit employees at all levels of an organization.

In an age of multiple modes of communication, it is becoming harder to hear and to be heard. In this class, we will explore theory and practices which will strengthen our skills and deepen our understanding of listening as fundamental to connection, learning, development, and leadership (regardless of our roles!)

Come ready for an open, safe, and dynamic opportunity to apply what you are learning. Leave with a deeper understanding of the “why” which makes listening essential, awareness of your listening strengths, as well as specific tools to try and an invitation to create an action plan to implement your learning.
