Marilyn Shannon Training Programs prove the point that listening can develop leadership skills and improve the dynamics of a leadership team.
Marketing and sales improve when we learn 1) how we listen, 2) what to listen for, and 3) what to do with what we hear.
The adult attention span averages twenty-two seconds. Immediately after listening to someone, we usually recall about half of what we’ve heard. Within a few hours, we remember about 20%.
How would your work or personal relationships improve if you became a more effective listener?
