Thanks to Jeff Heasman for this face to face training workshop.

Session Overview:

When listening to customers and colleagues, it is as important to understand what they don´t say as what they do say. We are all guilty of cloaking messages and there can be a number of reasons for this. Being left to read between the lines can have disastrous consequences.

By being able to listen for subliminal messages and nuances in communication and identifying the reason why someone is communicating in a certain way, we can avoid any problems manifesting themselves in the future and better understand the true meaning behind a message.

The skills of listening to what people don´t say is as critical as the skill of actively listening to what people do say. The skills taught in this session will add great insight and value to the relationships you build with customers and colleagues.

Venue: Kennford Suite, Exeter Court Hotel, Kennford, Exeter, EX6 7UX
