People don’t sufficiently work at listening. It is generally thought of as a passive activity but people need to turn it into more of an active activity. Listening well can give you a better idea of what’s going on in your organization and how you can add value. This presentation will explore ways people can turn proactive listening into a valuable skill that aids them in both their professional and personal life, offering various tips and thoughts to consider.
Join STC-PMC at the Collingswood Community Center for this informative talk on March 2nd starting at 7:00pm. Registration is now open.
A light dinner will be served.
