Engaged Listening

Course Overview

Communication is the foundation for developing effective relationships at home, at work and with employees. There are two parts to communication; sending the message and receiving the message. Effective listening is key to understanding messages that are being sent. Typically, adults listen to who they want to, when they want to.
