Neuroscience of Listening
A crucial skill and habit for effective leader
Today’s workplace has become more diverse, leaders have an important role to bring true humanity and equality of thoughts and ideas into the workplace by listening and valuing experience of others.
Besides, communication is intended to be a two-way street. However, too often we focus on improving our ability to talk, while neglecting to develop our listening skills. The ability to listen is a critical success in many aspects of our personal and professional lives.
Using a three-step process, leaders learn how to eliminate barriers to active listening, improve team’s engagement, maximize productivity, and build inclusive culture.
Leaders will receive the assessment booklet presented with an inventory of 30 listening-related statements.
The assessment takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Results reveal scores in three dimensions of listening. Leaders will bring the results to the workshop to deepen their awareness (strengths and improvement areas) of listening.
Successful participants will be able to:
identify benefits of true listening from neuroscience perspective
explain the importance of listening to the culture of inclusion
differentiate types of listening
determine listening effectiveness in three dimensions
learn what it takes both physically and mentally to listen
identify personal barriers to effective listening and be able to manage them
