Secret Listening Strategies to Enhance Coaches' Active Listening
Presented by Laura Janusik

Active listening often is hailed as the hallmark of listening, but active listening isn't enough. Listening is a cognitive activity and recent research (Bodie et al., 2020) has identified the 4 Listening Habits. Learn how to use cognitive listening habits with active listening to increase your coaching effectiveness. After all, when coaches listen well, they hear more, and they change more lives. What could be better than that?

In this presentation, coaches will:

• Understand that listening is a habit over which individuals have control
• Identify their own dominant listening habits and listening blind spots
• Practice one to two verbal listening strategies to create shared meaning
