Listening is crucial in so many interactions in day-to-day life. Whether that’s speaking with a client, colleague or customer, the way that people listen to each other plays a key role in shaping conversation outcomes. This is where having advanced listening skills is crucial. After all, we give out a lot of information when we speak — far more than we realise. Learning how to effectively listen to and process this information can give team members an advantage in their professional relationships, no matter what their role is. But what is the best way to listen that allows us to gain the most from our interactions with others?

This workshop will dive into the practical skills needed to listen more effectively, encouraging participants to transition from active listeners into advanced listeners through the application of various listening styles and filters, better positioning participants to fulfil the needs of both themselves and the speaker during future advanced listening situations.
