"You're not listening to me!" says or thinks a customer, employee, colleague.
We believe we are listening and yet the conversation seem stuck. For a customer, employee or colleague feeling listened to and understood is pivotal in connecting and moving forward. Leaders and their teams often struggle with this important step to get their audience from 'resistant to willing'.
Borrowing from Actors, they must learn to re-act genuinely as the camera/audience is right on them and it has to be real, it can't be acted.
How do they do it take after take?
I will share the Four Techniques, with EI mindset to help learners develop the soft skill of listening that has a hard impact.
Listening skills affect organizations globally!

The high cost associated with poor listening is estimated at 60% of all management problems and we misinterpret or change 70-90 % of what we hear.
