Personal Development

All our personal development trainings follow the same belief structure that in order to learn and put into practice what you have learnt, it is imperative that:

You have fun, you smile, you laugh, you are comfortable, You feel at ease, you ask questions, You are fed and watered (if appropriate) AND learn lots of helpful skills!


Listening & Questioning

Listening and Questioning are two of the most important skills you can have. How well you listen has a major impact on your job effectiveness and on the quality of your relationships with others.  Although we spend a lot of time “listening” we actually hear less than 25% of what we are told.  Then, once we do not fully understand what has been said we ask the wrong questions, which in turn does not give us the correct information.  Asking effective questions is as important as listening in the first place.

We will look at the listening process and how you can overcome the barriers we all face and “show” you are actively listening.
