How To Improve Your Listening Skills

Listening is the 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.

If there is one communication skill you should aim to master, then listening is it.

In 90 minutes participants will learn how to listen more effectively by:

  • understanding why we need good listening skills
  • becoming aware of the 5 levels of listening
  • learning about the 10 principles of listening
  • understanding the concept of active listening
  • participating in a practical activity to practise and embed listening techniques.
