Active Listening Workshop


Active listening helps in gaining better understanding, in giving better responses and in building rapport.   Poor listening leads to wasted time, lost revenue and impaired relationships.


However, listening is a skill and skills can be learned.  Learning to listen actively takes energy and focus but is well worth the effort. 


The Active Listening Workshop is a program for people who want to learn how to become better listeners and those who need others to listen better to them.  Workshop participants not only learn to be perceived as “great listeners” but learn to (1) more fully understand the messages they hear, (2) give better responses, (3) increase rapport and (4) persuade others.


To get the best results, training needs to be directly applicable to your workplace.  Therefore, Corporate LearnOvations’ programs are customized to meet your strategic business goals and use your organization’s terminology and scenarios. In addition, you select the workshop goals that best meet your needs.  For example, for the Active Listening Workshop you might choose participants to focus on how to . . .
