The first thing someone says is 14 percent of what they are thinking. This means that 86 percent of what they think and mean usually remains obscure and opaque to the listener.
Effective communication is as much about what we hear as it is about what we say though. And listening can be done with the whole body, not just our ears. Whether we are a scientist or a CEO, listening is critical to how effectively we operate in both our professional and personal lives, yet for most of us, we’ll never receive any formal training in this skill.
At RBW Consulting, all our staff are trained in specialist Deep Listening techniques as part of our Human Intelligence™ approach to talent acquisition and strategic consultancy. It’s so good though, that we don’t want to keep it to ourselves! We’re now offering all our clients and connections the chance to share in this training too, through a live, free-to-access webinar with world-renowned listening expert, Oscar Trimboli.
From understanding the principles behind more effective listening, through to identifying and acknowledging personal listening villains, this session will provide valuable insights, tools, and techniques to improve this critical skill and equally, avoid the cost of not listening effectively.
