Chad Morris, CPSM

Are you a good listener? By that I’m not asking about how well you hear. Rather, the question restated is

"How well do you listen?" The truth is that most current and aspiring professionals are much more likely to have formal training in presenting, public speaking, interviewing, and nonverbal communication than listening.

In this dynamic interactive session 
                                    • Learn what listening to your processes is all about.
                                      • Tangible tools that to share with your team or enterprise.
                                      • Separate the news from the noise and how to build processes that keep you in the know.
