Listening is the most important aspect of effective communication and ‘First seek to understand’ is a sound guiding principle. Effective listening is a dynamic and unfolding process. It helps you to build rapport, which in turn helps the speaker to clarify their thinking. Engaging this way also enables you to understand someone’s message, motivations, and intentions more fully. 

As you develop your listening skills you will distinguish yourself and appear more self-assured and confident. You will also be able to build more positive, collaborative, and productive relationships. When you listen fully by giving another person your undivided attention you demonstrate the highest form of respect. This means that they can then reciprocate with respect for you. 

The need for effective listening has never been greater. Perhaps you have to listen well as part of your job, or you want to give full attention to your children and loved ones, or maybe you simply want to do better in life. This powerful course will help you do all of these things and more.
