Communication: It’s Not Part of It – It’s All of It

How often have you said: “Why did that employee go ballistic?” Or “Why do I have to work with a jerk?” Whether you like it or not, you have to find a way to communicate with people. Mike Hourigan’s high energy, fast-paced session brings understanding to some of the most difficult communications problems like handling the back stabber, the gossip, or the difficult boss. Mike’s satirical and real world look at interpersonal communications weaves you through this mine field and provides easy to use solutions. In many cases, poor communication skills waste a lot of time. You will learn how to get off the phone quicker, how to get out of meetings faster, and how to get the “ploppers” out of your office in record time. Have you ever made someone mad but didn’t mean to? You will learn how to prevent this. You will even learn how to say “no” to people without hurting their feelings. If you hire people, work with people, or know any people, this is the program for you!

Active Listening for Optimum Results

75% of your day is spent communicating. Keynote-Speaker-Mike-Hourigan-Audience
Of that, 9% is spent writing, 16% reading, 30% speaking, and a whopping 45% listening!

Just like breathing, most of us think listening comes naturally. When you attend your first golf or yoga lesson, you may find you have been doing it wrong or not as efficiently or effectively as you could. Listening is no different.

Efficient listening is the skill that will deliver the biggest payoff, but usually it’s the skill most often is neglected. Listening is the skill that everyone expects you to have mastered but is never taught.

This program will show you how to accomplish more by listening proficiently and show you how to get others to choose to listen to you.
