Effective listening helps build cooperation. Effective listening skills are
an essential part of assertiveness and a caring work environment. As we
learn to listen well, we judge less, understand more and we see the best in
each other. When we are listening well, others make their point quickly and
we are open to their ideas and considerate of our own. Together, as we
become better at listening, we create a spiritual harmony in the workplace.
During this seminar, we will examine how to mirror, paraphrase, ask good
questions, give appreciation, add humour and find common ground. This
seminar is for you regardless of whether you have attended a similar
seminar. Let's come together for an enjoyable evening and discover better
ways to work well with others.
