Everything seems to beg for our attention these days, and especially with the rise of social media, we've started to tune things out more than ever. It is more important than ever to slow down and listen. Listening can help us learn about our internal struggles, fortify relationships, and become respected leaders.  This training combines mindful listening and communication techniques used in leadership and professional development, negotiation training, counseling, and conflict resolution. By the end of it, you will be familiar with how to:  Create a mindset for good listening Understand the barriers of effective listening and styles of bad listening Perform listening self-assessments and interactive exercises Have more fulfilling family, social and professional relationships  Listen with empathy and create a win-win situation every time Kit Pang is a Communication Expert, TEDx Speaker Coach, TEDx, Inbound, and Keynote speaker, the host of both BostonSpeaksSeries, and BostonSpeaksTalks and the founder of BostonSpeaks. He helps individuals become exceptional leaders by honing their communication and people skills. In an Age of Distraction, Kit shares that listening is a mindful choice we must make in order to create balance in our lives and that when we truly listen to others, we can make our friends, family, and co-workers feel like they are the most important person in the world.  www.bostonspeaks.com
