Where EXACTLY does listening impact your business?

Communication is the common thread throughout every business function and directly impacts execution and performance.

Listening Intelligence - awareness into the unique ways individuals listen to and for information - is one of your most effective business skills. A skill which strengthens relationships, impacts project execution, improves sales outcomes, enhances team functionality and elevates your leadership abilities.

In the Thrival Concepts Fundamentals of Listening workshop, you identify listening habits that impact workplace effectiveness and equip your teams and leaders with a tool kit of concepts and skills to develop powerful listening habits that drive high-value conversations. We uncover the pitfalls that prevent individuals from hearing and sharing important information, which often results in a break down in team effectiveness, and ultimately the erosion of company performance, profitability and culture. Participants gain awareness of their own listening habits and preferences using the proprietary ECHO Listening assessment, and through this methodology they learn tools to shift those habits to be more productive, effective, and engaged leaders.  This workshop culminates in participants developing a plan of action to deepen and expand on their unique communication style as individuals and as a collective team. 

Fundamentals of Listening helps professionals to develop greater self-awareness, and expands the agile communication skills necessary to be high performers, engaged teammates and innovative leaders.
