In today's complex, diverse, and fast-paced work environment, effective communication is critical. During Learning to Listen, participants will specifically focus on their ability to listen openly, attentively, and accurately. Participants will self-assess their listening skills, examine best practices to improve listening skills, and overcome common barriers in listening. Listening strategies such as reflecting meaning, restating, and paraphrasing will be reviewed. The intention of this workshop is to develop participants as better listeners, so they can foster mutual understanding and respect with colleagues in the workplace.
