Abstract/Description

When people are talking to you, are you really listening, or are you starting to think about what you’re going to say next? Even if you hear their words, are you sure that you understand their intended meaning? In this exercise-driven workshop we learn to employ Active Listening techniques to improve interpersonal communication, with particular attention to how active listening techniques can help an agile coach succeed.
