Human Resources In Transition Meeting:
Listen Like a Dog: How Listening LIke a Dog Can Yield Better Communication for Your Career and Life
Jeff Lazarus, author of Listen Like a Dog And Make Your Mark on the World, will lead our program in taking a fresh look at listening to improve communication skills in your career and life. The event title matches the title of the speaker’s most recent book about how powerful listening is in communication and how people can learn from dogs.
True listening can enhance every relationship in one’s life, and can transform broken associations and inject new life into business and social interactions. It is the magic ingredient that forges real connections with others. People want good listeners in their inner circle, and they want to do business with them. That means the person who masters this skill has enormous advantages, both in business and in his or her personal life.
The program will feature a presentation along with interactive activity to illustrate key learning points for human resources professionals in transition.
