I Beg Your Pardon... The Power of Listening

Communication makes up around 80 percent of the work of any manager and leader.

Communication makes up around 80 percent of the work of any manager and leader.

This makes listening your single most important skill. So in this course, we’ll look at why this is true, and seek to understand what listening really is.

But at the core of this powerful course, we’ll learn something nobody ever teaches at school – despite being so valuable… How to really listen.

And we’ll close by tackling the three main challenges every listener faces.

What you will learn

  • Why listening is important
  • How dialogue works
  • The different levels at which we listen
  • How to listen well
  • How to deal with the challenge of your mind wandering
  • How to deal with the challenge of external distractions
  • How to deal with the challenge of the silence after they stop speaking

Want to know more?
Listen in.

Note: Because this course is about listening, we've removed as many distractions as possible. There are no flashy animations or cool videos. But the course, short, to the point, and powerful. So dedicate half an hour to listening, and then put the ideas to work, for the rest of your life.

Bonus: I've tested this program out in a live webinar, so a bonus lecture contains my answers to the two best questions my audience asked.
