    Topic: How Great Leaders LISTEN to Unleash Results

    Date: Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

    Location: AR Workshop, 3208 Tarabochia St, Gig Harbor (across from Harbor General Store)

    Time: 7:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.

    Did you know the #1 skill that differentiates a great business owner is their ability to listen? 
    Listening helps to build trust with partners, employees and reinforces your culture. We all think we're great listeners - yet what typically happens is that we find ourselves distracted as someone is talking with us. Our attention focuses on what we're going to say next, what we think the speaker is going to say next or in sometimes, we drift to another land and start planning our 'to do' list. 

    In the workshop, you will:

    • Take the Quiz: How well do you listen?
    • Learn: 3 ways listening grows your business 
    • Practice: the keys to listening
    • Leave with: a new framework that will help you have ANY conversation (especially a challenging one) with greater ease and success!

    Workshop #11 December 17

  • "I've been to Straight Talk for Success (Feb and Mar) and must say that this has been multiple layers deeper than I had ever expected. I've read management books, especially time management and am an avid list maker. I was pleasantly surprised that the new methods have moved so far beyond that, they are like playing chess instead of checkers. So worth the time and effort to attend and partake of Jen and Roger's wisdom. These guys play chess and do it well."
