Are You Listening?
Working with teams requires a step-change in your listening skills.
This doesn’t mean you have to forget or abandon your previous experience – just that the art of listening takes on new dimensions when we are not in a ‘simple’ one-to-one engagement.
In this series, we begin to expand on the core communication skill of listening and provide opportunities to become aware of what is happening intrinsically – using yourself as a listening instrument – as well using your cognitive awareness to add value in team conversations.
