About this course

When it comes to creating genuine connections with each other, good communication is really important.

Whilst technology has made it easier for us to communicate with each other, it hasn't necessarily made our communication more meaningful. And with remote and hybrid work set-ups becoming more common, we long to connect with each other in a more human way.

Communication plays an important role in our day-to-day lives because it allows us to bond with people, share our thoughts, feelings, and experiences with them, and it helps us to reach out and connect. Ultimately, improving communication skills will always be beneficial.

This course provides users with all the information they need to improve their active listening skill. Our actionable tips can be immediately put into practice by your employees, and whilst it will require a certain amount of patience to see improvement, it's a sure fire way to improve your team's active listening skill.

The course can be completed in just 10 minutes and provides a printable certificate upon completion.

Fantastic Training Course!

Really enjoyed this training course - its was educational, informative, engaging and interesting.


It has helped me understand smart goals better

Useful advice

Some very useful advice on Active Listening - it made me instantly revisit my own approach and I started to adapt immediately.Presentation was a bit wordy, only a few practical scenarios. Adding these would have made it longer, which can be off putting and self defeating.

very clear

useful refresh on communication skills

Although short it covers the basics of how to actively listen really well
