Total Workshop Time: 2 Hours 

Make-Ups: There are no make-up sessions for this workshop.

Pre-requisites: None

Target Audience: Individuals interested in learning more about personal communication and good listening.

Workshop Description: Because good listening depends on our receiving sometimes subtle verbal and non-verbal cues, it requires our full attention. Further, if the people we are listening to receive cues from our body language and eye contact that we are focused on what they are saying, it helps build the trust that's so critical to effective problem-solving and productivity.

This brief workshop focuses on some of the most essential aspects of listening: paying attention to our surroundings and to those we work with, and then taking an active and empathetic role in every conversation.

In this workshop participants will:

  • appreciate the role of attention in listening and building effective communication.
  • better understand how personal communication habits are related to attention, and recognize that this crucial communication factor is largely under your control.
  • understand that listening occurs at several different levels and that each level produces different results.
  • recognize the skills of empathic listening.
