As we resurface from the pandemic, what better time to focus on our listening skills? While we practice, you will get re-socialized and re-energized around the foundational leadership skill of listening.


Learn how to focus your attention and connect in a way that opens pathways for people to express their unique needs, abilities, and willingness to contribute.


By the end of this course, you will be able to

  • Determine when heightened listening skills are required and how to listen attentively
  • Create productive listening environments that result in solutions
  • Identify how to work with their personal strengths and limitations around listening


Most suitable for

Leaders at all levels, whether you lead people directly or are an individual contributor.
