About This Class

Everyone hears, but few listen.

Active listening is the key to increasing leadership equity, unlocking employee retention, increasing workplace efficiency, and so much more!

What was once considered an innate ability (a trait everyone was born with) has now become a specialized skill; something that takes effort, practice, and intentionality.

Did you know there are four components to active listening? Furthermore, did you know that missing one of the four components means you’re not listening?


“Have you ever noticed how the most intriguing individual in the room seems content to listen sooner than speak?”  ~ Richelle E. Goodrich


Listening used to be an art. Today active listening is a skill that has become a competitive advantage!

In today’s fast-paced, always-on world we have become a generation of distracted people. On top of that, we multitask while multitasking. 

This course shows you the 4 Elements to Active Listening using a clever memory device that will help you keep this skill at the top of your mind.

In addition I offer you practical steps and tips to help you change the way people perceive your listening skills.

This fun, fast-moving, information-packed course will move the needle in your business (and personal) relationships!

Listening used to be an art. Now it’s a skill. Don’t be left behind. Stop hearing. Start listening.  I’ll see you in class!

Things that make me happy? YOU!

A great, quick overview of active listening skills.
Excellent course for someone like me. I run a fast paced business and I often wonder what my employee’s think and feel when they are engaging with me throughout the day. I learned to stop everything I’m doing and truly listen. Give them my full attention. I’m excited to put this into practice and see what transpires. FYI: I’m usually flying by and talking....This may take them back. LOL
