Listening & Asking Clarifying Questions

Course Description

There’s a world of difference between hearing and listening. Active listening doesn’t come naturally, which is why this training course is ideal for all employees within an organization. When employees actively listen, they pay full attention, listen between the lines, notice nonverbal communication and ask the right questions.

Real-World Application

Listening is key to all effective communication, without the ability to listen effectively messages are easily misunderstood – communication breaks down and the sender of the message can easily become frustrated or irritated.  Improve your listening skills and improve your life.
