How to Practice Authentic Communication in a Virtual Space Through the Power of Listening
About the Webinar
Being a good listener is vital to practicing authentic communication and ultimately, to a leader’s success. In today’s virtual world, merely showing up on camera or phone doesn’t inherently make you an active listener. Becoming a better listener in a virtual world allows leaders to improve their connection with team members and build relationships that result in more efficient and effective work. Join us as we uncover how to practice authentic communication – without ever leaving your home or office – by listening for facts, feelings, and values.
