The Golden Art of Listening and Ego Management

If silence is golden, are you getting richer or poorer in your business? Have you calculated how much poor listening skills have cost you in both time and money? Misinformation, redoing work, poor relationships with staff and clients and wasted time are just a few of the symptoms of costly listening skills that impact on your business communication.

Often, assuming we already know something, skimming over a document, or not being fully present and conscious when a colleague or customer communicates with us causes us to make errors by not listening properly, impacting on the quality of work we produce, and often on the customer experience and business profitability.
