Summary

Have you ever found yourself in the middle of an argument with someone who just isn’t getting it?

Most of us miss out on the visual emotive cues we see during direct interpersonal communication. Without these important context clues, we struggle to grasp the intent of the messenger and often the real meaning of the message.

To make matters worse, our dependence on instant communication, like text messaging and email, has resulted in forgetting how to talk to one another in person.

Without proper knowledge of the other person’s feelings or intent, our communication suffers and the health of our relationships are put at risk.

This audiobook was written to give clear direction and guidance for improving how to listen to the people in our lives. The lessons within will lead you to build better relationships at home, at work, and everywhere in between. The Power of Listening is designed to lead you down a path of self-awareness and self-improvement. This audiobook will teach you how to be mindful of your own words and actions by understanding the process of healthy communication.

As a couple’s therapist, I witnessed people experience radical breakthroughs once they understood what was holding them back. I saw as they recognized how the changes in their communication style positively impacted their relationships at home and at work. In this audiobook, you will discover:

  • The 3 crucial stages of listening
  • The power of empathy and secrets to empathic listening
  • The most proven steps to provide emotional validation
  • 13 little known road blocks to active listening
  • The best kept secrets to effective verbal and non verbal messaging
  • A 5 step action plan to strengthen communication with family, work and friends
  • And so much more!

This audiobook will work for you, even if you have failed with communication in the past or feel your relationships are beyond repair.

If you are ready to improve your listening skills, then buy this audiobook now!

Outstanding !!

This book isn't particularly long, yet it's jam-packed with ideas. It appeared to be well-written and simple to read. I liked how the author wrapped off each part with a short summary of the main points. There are many thought-provoking and actionable ideas in this book.
