For many of us, listening is simply something we do on autopilot. We hear just enough of what others say to get our work done, maintain friendships, and be polite with our neighbors. But we miss crucial opportunities to go deeper—to give and receive honest feedback, to make connections that will endure for the long haul, and to discover who people truly are at their core. In this enlightening webinar, author Ximena Vengoechea reveals tips and tricks for being a more effective listener, including cultivating a listening mindset, identifying unmet needs in conversation, and how our default listening mode can get in the way of connecting with others.
