Sep 13 16
Do your colleagues actually listen to what you’re saying during a meeting? Or do they pay more attention to their phones?
Would you and your team like to learn how to listen more effectively so you can have awesome meetings?
If the answer is yes, then this episode of the Create Awesome Meetings Podcast is for you. In this episode you’ll learn how to:
Get interested - because ‘the most interesting people are those who are the most interested’
Repeat what you’ve heard so that whoever was talking feels acknowledged
Say the person's name when you respond, because we all love the sound of our own name
Remember what you appreciate about who’s talking, and if there isn’t much then make something up
Make eye contact
Turn off your phone
Allow people to finish what they are saying
Pick the right time to say your answer instead of just blurting it out before someone finishes speaking
Relax and be present
