Listening Skills

1-Day Course on How to Master the Art of Listening, Establishing Rapport and Gaining People's Trust

Fully Customisable Training Course Material: Description

“Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise, you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity, and the emotions to affect other people.”

Jim Rohn

Listening skills is perhaps one of the most important skills used when communicating with others. Imagine what happens when people discover that you are not listening to them or don’t care much about them. Naturally, they are quick to distance themselves from you. Everyone loves to be listened to, but unfortunately we never seem to be doing enough listening. People are deprived of listening and those who can master this skill and establish themselves as good listeners stand to gain enormously as they can make long lasting friendships with others. By developing a reputation of being a good listener an individual can transform his life in many dimensions.

This course aims to help delegates master the art of listening in professional and personal settings. Listening, like all skills, can be mastered through guidance, practice and persistence. This course is designed around numerous examples as this is the most effective way to learn. The course is full of examples that clearly demonstrate what each listening guideline suggests. In particular, several examples of bad listening are provided so delegates can see clearly which method works and which doesn’t.

All sessions include exercises to allow delegates practice the listening skills discussed in each session. Various areas are explored such as listener personalities, types of listening, bad listening habits, use of toxic words, questioning skills to encourage constructive conversations and many others.

The training materials come complete with all the necessary content such as workbook, slides, course notes, exercises, etc. which allow trainers to quickly run the course based on their specific demand.

The Philosophy Behind Listening Skills Training Course

We all develop certain listening habits and some of these habits are unfortunately not very effective. The listening skills course aims to increase the delegate’s awareness about these particular habits and show, usually through many examples, how their conversations can be improved. Critically, delegates will learn that this can be achieved quite easily by following guidelines which produce incredible results.

Listening Skills Training Materials

The course is designed specifically around example conversations rather than simply taking the delegates through a number of bullet points. In our experience, this is much more effective since delegates can draw up guidelines themselves based on the examples they go through and the exercises they participate in. This helps them to learn the skills quickly and also remember them long after the course.
