About The Event
Listening is one of the most important skills a leader can master. It is the basis of so many other skills and traits required for effective leadership. However, research suggests that we only remember between 25 and 50 percent of what we hear. This session will focus on listening best practices and strategies, tips and techniques we can apply in our communications with our team members and colleagues to enhance the positive impact of our leadership.
