Send the message that you are listening to understand

 

The truth is, it’s easy to not listen. We are surrounded by distractions and the list of reasons we don’t listen well is long. So we have to work on listening to make others feel heard—especially at work. By the end of this course, you will be able to describe how to become a better, more active listener by focusing your attention on the speaker and clarifying their message.

 

Topics covered include:

  • Conveying that you are listening using short statements (verbal cues) and body language
  • Seeking agreement and understanding using a simple clarifying statement formula
  • Providing a safe and distraction-free listening environment
  • Using appropriate questions to understand the speaker’s message
  • Focusing on the speaker by paying attention to body language
  • Expressing empathy and providing input to help the speaker better understand their situation

 

 

By the end of this course, you will be able to describe how to become a better, more active listener by focusing your attention on the speaker and clarifying their message.
