    Difficulty in listening is often at the centre of communication problems and this course raises awareness and provides a space for developing insight and creating ways of being which are powerful in communication.  Proper listening in a professional context can help to handle issues early and to avoid future complaints.

    If you want to feel freer to communicate effectively with the people you work with this course is for you.
