What is the one quality people value in virtually any type of relationship? Being a good listener. Unfortunately, listening doesn’t always evoke the care it deserves. This
provocative keynote aims to change that, since having a company full of purposeful listeners is the ultimate weapon for building an extraordinary culture.

Listening sounds simple, but if that were true, people would be better at it. The ability to listen meaningfully requires skills that must be learned, then sharpened
and honed regularly.

Organizational communication expert Chris Dyer will help audience members do an honest assessment of their own listening habits and provide actionable ways to improve. Chris demonstrates how easy it is to go from listening to reply, to listening to understand. This transformation is linked to stronger networks, better working relationships, higher employee engagement, trust, organizational effectiveness, and profits.

Becoming a better listener is well worth the effort! After all, there’s a reason we have two ears and only one mouth.
