When people listen, organisations gain a competitive advantage from better communication, morale, and productivity to reduced absenteeism, turnover, and conflict...
However, studies show people remember only half of what they hear, even moments after they’ve heard it and that’s not all...on average, people spend 45% of their time listening, yet only 2% report they've had formal education on the topic. Research makes the message loud and clear — it’s time to add listening to your training line-up.
Learning to Listen is a communication instrument that focuses on the visible — and invisible — aspects of listening behaviour: Staying Focused, Capturing the Message, and Helping the Speaker.
