Now Hear This
March 1 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Did you know that as much as 40% of the average workday is spent listening to others? That’s close to half of your day! Isn’t it time, therefore, to stop and make sure you’re using your time to its greatest advantage? Take a few moments and ask yourself: Are you an effective listener? How often do you assess your listening skills? Could you improve? That’s where “Now Hear This” can help. In this workshop, we’ll: Define “listening” and how it impacts your work; Recognize and deal with the barriers between listener and speaker; and Practice good listening techniques and identify ways to make them work for you. Effective communication does not happen by chance; it requires practice and good technique. If you would like to get more out of your listening skills, attend “Now Hear This: Listening, Comprehending, Communicating.” Pre-registration required in myTraining.
This class counts toward the Business Communications, Thrive@UF, Pro3 Fiscal, Pro3 HR/Payroll, Pro3 Academic Department, GatorsTogether, and GatorsTogether Supervisor certifications.
