"Do You Hear What I Hear?" Listening Skills for the New Economy
Kenneth R. Johnson, author of Effective Listening Skills, wrote, "Listening effectively to others can be the most fundamental and powerful communication tool of all. When someone is willing to stop talking or thinking and begin truly listening to others, all of their interactions become easier, and communication problems are all but eliminated."
How well do you listen? To your customers? To your work colleagues? To the significant others in your life? Have you ever gained or lost a business opportunity because of your listening acumen?
Vince DiCecco, owner of Your Personal Business Trainer, delivered a lunch-n-learn presentation that was lively, interactive, and caused attendees to look introspectively at how they can assess their listening prowess and sharpen that ability. Who knows? Maybe life and business can become even more rewarding than it already is through the "POWER of Listening". The file contains the slides from that presentation.
