Adaptive Listening™ workshop overview

Uncover a better way to listen that goes beyond active listening and paying attention. Learn about the way you prefer to listen, and adapt to help others meet their goals.

We spend more than half our workday listening to other people. But are we really any good at it?

A lot of the inefficiencies, tensions, and strained relationships in the workplace come down to poor listening skills. But listening is more than just “paying attention” or “not interrupting.”

And the truth is, we don’t all listen the same way. Some people listen to “soak it all in,” others to “uncover red flags,” some to “fix for the future,” and some to “be there for the other person.” Organizations need all types of listeners but at the right time and place.

Great listeners uncover the other person’s goals and needs, and then adapt the way they listen to help that person meet them.

People who implement this type of speaker-focused listening can better connect with leaders, peers, direct reports, and external stakeholders. That speaker could be a leader on stage at a company meeting, a customer or client on the other end of the sales call, a manager or direct report in a 1:1, or even a peer who you bump into in the micro kitchen or during a virtual meet-up.

In this workshop, you’ll not only uncover your S.A.I.D. Listening Style™, you’ll learn how to adapt your listening for others.
