Listen: Be Brilliant (Advanced Communication Techniques) by Mary Redmond
Each of us listens to our own inner conversation or to words uttered by others. At work all people seem to do is TALK. Communication is exhausting.
The sweetest sound. for most of us. is that of our own voice eloquently debating or extemporizing about a subject. Sometimes what we say has nothing to do with the conversation that was going on when we entered the fray.

This revelation means that perhaps if we’d stifle our brilliance and listen, we’d be more successful and happier.
Early on in life, we learned that we think faster, than people talk. With all that extra time, many of us busy our brains pondering our next pearl of wisdom.
Some of us may admit that we’re poor listeners. However, we still don’t want to pause and give others our full attention. We haven’t accepted that we’ll be more successful when we’re quiet.

In this workshop, you’ll learn and practice how:
1. Bottom-Up Communication requires more Listening that Talking.
2. Communication that’s Honest, Open and Willing builds Trust.
3. Consistent Communication Content Builds Consistent Outcomes
4. Flexible Communication style raises team respect all members.
5. A dynamic, optimistic atmosphere uses Improv Comedy Rules.
6. Managers who listen before speaking, build an environment of trust and new possibilities.

The lessons from this workshop will demonstrate the power of listening. As the Latin writer said:
“I often regret that I have spoken; never that I have been silent.” – Publilius Syrus a talented and clever Latin writer who lived (85-42BC).
