Becoming a Better Listener
"Do you listen, or just wait to talk?" Asked John Travolta of Samuel L. Jackson, in the movie, "Pulp Fiction."

Listening is probably the most important, yet undervalued, skill for success in both our personal professional lives. Raising your awareness of what listening is, and understanding how to overcome the barriers to being good at it, can help you sharpen your own communication skills to BE A BETTER LISTENER & BE LISTENED TO!

Business coach, speaker and author Alan Adler will share his years of experience with you on the best ways to become a better listener and to make a connection with your audience -- whether it's one person or one thousand. You can also ask Alan your questions and "listen" to his advice.

How do you block our distractions? What's the role of emotions in listening? Do you know the 3 C's for better listening? This Listening Skills Workshop reveals all of this and more.

Most business schools don't teach listening skills. However, becoming a better listener can dramatically improve both your personal and professional life.

Alan Adler is a Business Coach, Speaker & Author of Upstream and Getting the Fish to Swim to YOU & Keeping Them in YOUR Boat — books that help business professionals and their organizations’ improve performance. He is a sought-after speaker and has run a successful for-profit company bringing a unique perspective to his passion: helping his clients, readers and listeners do better. Alan studied “listening” under Dr. Lyman Steil, Chairman & CEO, Communication Development , Inc & International Listening Leadership Institute.
