Influential Listening


“Are You Listening and How: Listening to and Influencing Others” ©

My employee was an excellent sales person but had difficulty communicating. It interfered with promoting him, but I didn’t want to lose him. The experience he had working with Judy Rosemarin was enormously successful.” – Vice President – Sales/Mfg.

Hearing is for sound, listening is the meaning we make of that sound.

In today’s world of instant communications, listening has never been so important. A quick mistake in listening/communication can lead to huge losses in trust, sales, revenues and sustaining progress.

Our two-day “Are You Listening and How: Listening to and Influencing Others” © workshops help you learn how to listen with intention, read others, listen to the stated words as well as the silences, discover your own listening preferences, match the styles of others and select the most appropriate listening style for maximum impact.

Poor listening has been the root of the majority of conflicts and confusion. Poor listeners cannot effectively influence others. Participants who take this workshop learn that the first step in influencing others is having a clear intention then creating trust by listening appropriately. The workshop combines lecture, learning your own listening styles, role plays for practice, group discussion of case studies and ample time for practicing new listening approaches.

What clients have said:

I learned a lot and felt challenged and will be working on my detail-listening with my team.

It was an insightful course which enables you to better understand and evaluate your attributes and shortfalls in listening. It can be useful in both personal life and business.

My empathic listening wasn’t one of my strong suits before working with Judy and it has developed so that it has created a a much stronger dynamic and understanding with my marketing team and the sales team as a whole. I increased my confidence, improved my ability to lead, mentor and engage my team so they are clear about expectations, roles and responsibilities; learned about how to deliver ‘hard news’ and gained in my ability to be contextually assertive without being abrasive or aloof.”
