Selfless Listening to Build Relationships


Technology has provided us the ability to be connected all the time We can easily carry a multi-functional communication tool everywhere we go We are in constant contact with everything we need, whenever we need or want it

Are we really connected?

Has email, texting, Facebook and voicemail truly helped us remain better engaged, connected and understood?

Are we actively solving problems, or simply managing them?

Have we lost our ability truly communicate, engage, and collaborate?

We have reached the tipping point where speed and efficiency have diminished our ability to connect, understand and listen to each other to bring resolution to critical personal and business issues!

This is why Dave Cooke is so passionate about his program, "Selfless Listening." "Selfless Listening" helps participants discover how to re-connect and communicate effectively with those we most need to be engaged with in both our personal and our professional lives.

Selfless listening provides participants with the skills and the process to:

- Listen effectively to others
- See and understand what others see, experience, and feel from where they are
- Create an environment which builds trust
- Engage in behaviors which:

    - identifies issues
    - brings clarity to conflict
    - prioritizes the problem
    - encourages collaboration
    - establishes commitment
