Greater Reading Chamber Alliance Executive Briefing
Senior executives and organizational leaders oversee complex ecosystems with information and people constantly coming at them. Managers and executives spend up to 80% of their workdays listening to assess information, gain new insights and make decisions. However, only 2% of people have had any listening training or been taught HOW to probe for deeper understanding. Instead, they are taught how to tell, know, and speak, when listening is the communication skill they really need. With the inability to listen at the core of so many of the problems organizations face, maximizing listening skills enables us to be amazing communicators and strong, present leaders for our teams.
Join the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance for an interactive and engaging workshop with listening expert Christine Miles on how to transform the way we listen in our personal and professional lives to connect more deeply and have a larger impact on our organizations and the world around us.
In this in-person event, Christine will interact directly with participants to dig deeper, answer questions, share hypotheticals, and explore the ways we can begin to listen differently to improve business results.
Participants will walk away from this dynamic workshop with a deeper understanding of the value of listening, how to listen to truly understand, and cultivate cultures of empathy and understanding.
Specifically, participants will learn to:
• Apply the 6 most powerful questions to listen differently
• Discover why even good listeners fail
• Identify the enemy of listening and the different listening personas
• Understand the impact of listening on results and successes
• Transform how they listen in personal and professional settings
