Do you feel that you could do a better job motivating the people that work with and for you?

Do you think that you are good listener, but notice that there is conflict and frustration around you?

Do you want people cooperating and being innovative together, but get competition and secretiveness instead?

Do you receive complaints about unfair treatment, inappropriate comments or inequality issues?

 

 

 

Top executives and business leaders who recently participated in a listening intensive shared:

“Frankly, I had never thought of listening as an important subject by itself. But now that I am aware of it, I think that perhaps 80% of my work depends on my listening to someone, or on someone else listening to me.”

“I’ve been thinking back about things that have gone wrong over the past couple of years, and I suddenly realized that many of the troubles have resulted from someone not hearing something, or getting it in a distorted way.”

“It’s interesting to me that we have considered so many facets of communication in the company, but have inadvertently overlooked listening. I’ve about decided that it’s the most important link in the company’s communications, and it’s obviously also the weakest one.”

What’s your level of active listening expertise?

Here’s a little listening quiz.  Just take a moment and see what questions you can answer:

  • What are the top concerns of my colleagues, team members and division heads?
  • Where do they feel frustrated or stuck?
  • Where could they use some extra help, guidance or support? 
  • What do they like to do in their free time? 
  • What problems are they facing, personally and professionally? 
  • How supported do they feel at work?
  • How are they viewed and approached by others?
  • What, if anything, is falling between the cracks in terms of their day-to-day responsibilities? 
  • What problems or concerns do they have that need to be immediately addressed?

Your academic and on-the-job training probably did not give you the listening skills that you need to succeed.

We are not taught how to actively listen because most people don’t know how. Most people are too busy thinking about what they are going to say next instead of listening to what someone else is sharing.

Active listening helps you to create an environment in which your employees feel motivated and committed to do and be their best, to be innovative and creative, and to find new ways to give better service, deliver better products and increase your bottom line.

Active listening helps you to create an environment in which the leaders and followers in your organization work together to promote your organization's WHY and create more revenue streams for success.

Active listening helps you to keep everyone on board and working together to meet deadlines and reach goals.

Active listening helps you to create an atmosphere of mutual trust, cooperation and respect throughout your organization, and that’s priceless.

Listening for Success is about taking your entire organization’s listening and relationship skills to the next level, starting at the top and working down.

Our goal is to share everything we know about active listening, which includes being genuinely curious, being fully present, asking empowering questions and designing actions, so that you have the skills and tools you need moving forward.

We believe that world is a little bit better place with every person who learns how to listen to the people who are critical to our success, from front-line employees to middle management to c-suite; from prospects to long-term clients or customers; from colleagues and peers locally, nationally and internationally who we can connect with and tap to mutually support one another's prosperity and growth.
