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!

The Pfeil Innovation Center, sponsored by Beacon Health System, is proud to present the one-day LISTENING PAYS® workshop on Friday, September 22, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Pfeil Innovation Center is located at 420 N. Niles Avenue, South Bend.

This unique workshop will be presented by Beacon’s own Certified LISTENING PAYS® Facilitators: Jewel Abram-Copenhaver and Dr. Kimberlie Warren. These talented individuals have been personally trained and mentored by Dr. Rick Bommelje, Ed.D., CLP known by many as the “Listening Doctor”. Rick Bommelje serves as a Professor in the Department of Communication at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida and has over 30 years of professional experience in listening, leadership, management, and adult education. Dr. Bommelje is also the past President of the International Listening Association and was inducted into the Listening Hall of Fame.

Registration for this unique and one-of-a-kind workshop is $250 per person.

Attendees will receive a “Listening” experience filled with exciting and informative instruction, activities, lunch, snacks, beverages, and the “Listening Pays” assessment and the book Listening Pays: Achieve Significance through the Power of Listening, by Rick Bommelje.

This practical and engaging workshop will help participants gain skills needed to become a sustainable leader through improved listening in both professional and personal endeavors creating better business and family relationships. Specific listening aids will help participants remember the concepts and tools provided and put the learning’s into an action plan ready for immediate implementation.
