Have you ever solved the wrong problem? Had a misunderstanding? When was the last time YOU felt really heard and understood? Has it been a while? Listening is probably the most important communication skill we can learn. It is foundational to our ability to understand others which then helps us take better aim when solving problems. Come learn about the levels of listening and practice the art of skillful discussion. As Bernard M. Baruch once said, “Most of the successful people I’ve known are the ones who do more listening than talking.”
