Course Overview

Active listening is at the core of healthy relationships, both personal and professional.  

Body language, tone, and words all play a significant role in communication, but without the component of listening, even the well-intentioned communicator may not succeed.

It is not only the responsibility of the sender to encode the message, but also the responsibility of the receiver to decode the message effectively. This 1-day workshop will help participants build and improve their listening, processing, and comprehension skills.
