Listening and Asking 

Effective conversation happens when you listen more than you talk. Before we can resolve a situation, we must understand what’s being said – which means not only listening, but asking questions to clarify the information we hear. This module trains participants how to ask better questions to gain better understanding.
Note: Although this class is specifically designed to develop skills required of administrative professionals, enrollment is open to all employees.
