Become a Better Leader & Stronger Family
Through the Power of Listening
One-Day LISTENING PAYS® Workshop
Listening -- it seems so simple. Yet, it’s estimated that the average person ignores, forgets, or misunderstands at least 75% of what he or she hears. Is it any wonder that mistakes occur, opportunities are missed, or that the “I’ll take care of it!” never happens? ~Dr. Rick Bommelje, Ed.D., CLP
Have you ever caught yourself saying “I know I’m forgetting something”? Does your family ever say “would you just listen to me”? Is building a better business environment and strengthening family relationships top on your priority list? If you have answered YES to any of these questions, this workshop is for YOU!
