Mindful Listening at Work


We only remember 25% of a conversation after a few minutes of it ending due to distractions.

Mindful listening can help you communicate and listen more effectively with just a little investment of your time.

With this course, you’ll find that by practising mindfulness techniques, you’ll optimise your attention.

Your focus during visual and listening tasks will improve. You’ll be able to retain more information and your work productivity will benefit.

By the end of the sixth lesson, you’ll have learned how to optimise your interactions with work colleagues through your enhanced mindful listening skills.

You’ll also see positive results in your life outside of work too!
