Power Tools For Communicating And Listening

Participants will be introduced to a model for listening that will offer insight into the subtle communication dynamics that exists between people.  The model teaches the skills to listen to these dynamics for immediate use for both personal and business interactions.

    Great meeting -- so happy that I chose this event for my first visit to Triangle Lunch Talks. While the whole presentation was informative, I can't stop thinking about Being, Doing, and Dreaming, and identifying each in the people I meet. Thanks, Marilyn!

    I didn't hear a word Marilyn said. Instead I was intently listening. Some good and interesting content.
