View Schedule

Too often in business, everybody talks but no one really listens. People attend meetings and spend most of it multitasking instead of really engaging. Or they hear the words that are being spoken without grasping the real meaning. Without engaged, interactive listening, there can be no true collaboration, no coming together to achieve mutual objectives.
In this session, attendees will review and practice key techniques for effective, interactive listening and inquiry to ensure they're truly hearing, processing, and comprehending, and more than that, thinking creatively. Interactive listening, coupled with creative thinking, encourages all parties to find ways to say "yes," forging a path everyone can get behind.
