Happy Holidays Daniel, Nice to make your acquaintance.
Transforming Your Communication Capabilities: Listening Tips
We've been communicating since we were born. So the tendency is to believe that we all communicate well. Think again!
In this era of fast-paced living we are often left little room for sending and receiving clear, satisfying, confident communication. More importantly, we need to focus on being fully present while listening to communicate well.
We speak and we listen. Our clients understand the value of listening. We teach the techniques in Kay Lindahl's Practicing the Sacred Art of Listening. The needs of business colleagues, and personal relations are affected by our ability to really hear the message being sent.
When we take the time and have the intent to be fully present while listening before responding, our communication can be clear and smooth.
Among our many success stories is Ann, who got promoted to Senior Accountant with a prestigious firm. After learning The Confident Communicator™ strategies, she strengthened her ability to communicate with power. Ann honed her listening skills to be able to fully understand what was needed for her career advancement. She told me, "I'm not only a better listener, but I'm a better thinker now." Her accomplishment is even more impressive because English is not her first language.
