9180528 HR Basics: Personal Competency Builder 1 - Listening Skills: The Foundation of Communication Success
May 3, 2018 | 8:30 am - 11:30 am


Did you know that before you can be a great communicator, you must also be a great listener? You must be aware of an individual’s needs in order to more effectively lead a discussion. Listening goes beyond giving someone your full attention, it requires you to have emotional intelligence. So invest in your own success by strengthening the foundational skill of listening.

In this session you will: 

  • Assess your listening skills and work to overcome listening filters
  • Apply effective approaches to deal with different types of listeners
  • Engage others by asking factual, causative, and value-based questions
