As part of the awareness campaign, I am presenting a free workshop in Washington DC (21st & L NW) on Thursday, March 21, 2013 from 3:00 to 4:30pm.
I've titled the workshop, Listening - The Super Hero of Communication: How to listen your way to higher profits, healthier businesses, and happier relationships.
Here are some of the things those attending will learn:
- 4 Cs of listening. Apply these and your listening will improve immediately.
- 5 listening behaviors speakers hate. (You probably use at least two.)
- How a start up snatched a multi-million dollar contract from an industry giant, all because of better listening skills.
- Why so called "active listening" can backfire, and a technique to use instead.
Admission is free, but reservations are required. CLICK HERE for more details and to register.
Although most of you know me for my presentations, speech coaching, and news interview training, listening has fascinated me since I was a kid. I have studied and conducted listening research since the mid-1970s. And I find that:
Listening is exciting, powerful, rewarding!
If you're nearby, come join me on the 21st. If you're not in the Washington DC metro area, but know people here who would benefit from the workshop, please let them know.
