Description

Most of us want to get better at talking. But the REAL power tool for influencing others, leading, collaborating, having an impact, and being an an-all-around-better person is Active Listening. While regular listening can look like being blank and silent, Active Listening is engaged, creative, and responsive.
In this course, you will gain both the internal awareness and external skill-set that are the foundation of Active Listening. You will be able to have far more satisfying, interesting, successful conversations.
I created this practical  Udemy course for you–filled with my unique insights from starting out as a terrible listener to now being a professional listener, a Master Certified Coach. I’ve been teaching people how to listen actively for twenty years now and these skills are both learnable and priceless. My course is packed with real-world examples that demystify and simplify what to pay attention to so you can be a great listener.
Good News!
•You can interrupt!
•You can have short (not drawn-out & boring) conversations!
•You do not have to provide answers or fixes or expertise!
•You don’t have to even like your conversation partner!
Selfishly, I have found that being a great Active Listener makes other people more interesting. We’ll all be more fascinated with each other if we have more great listeners in the world.
Come join in the fun!
