The average adult speaks at about 100-150 words per minute. Most listeners can hear and comprehend about 200 words per minute — or more. This means we need to tune-in, people, but active listening is challenging. It requires focus, patience, and sincerity. It also requires the acceptance that yours is not the only opinion worth hearing. Mastering the art of good listening improves communication and safeguards relationships.

Objectives:
o Assess their listening skills to overcome obstacles
o Deal with all kinds of listeners
o Genuinely engage with others and ask questions that uncover opportunities for growth
o Demonstrate active listening skills in all interactions
