Pederson Consulting-Listening Skills for Managers



Key strategies to enhancing your ability to really hear what your clients and colleagues are saying to you!

In this workshop participants will develop strategies to master the art of listening.  Too often we are in a hurry to get to the next appointment, anxious to speak our own viewpoint, too focused on being “right”, or have too many “other things” going on in our mind that we fail to pay attention to the person speaking or asking a question.  Through understanding individual style differences, participants will learn how to adapt their skills to enhance their working relationships with clients and colleagues.
