Session Title:  Say What?....Building your Effective Listening Skills
Presenter: Karen Kiester,  Senior Manager, Global Business Services, Michigan

“Say What?  While everyone hears a vast volume of information every day, it is important to distinguish between hearing and listening.  Cultivating listening skills is the foundation for effective communication and without this skill, messages are easily misunderstood.  To grow this critical skill, we need to decide to listen instead of just hearing and show concern for the person speaking.  If not, communication breaks down and can cause many issues that can effect not only your personal relationships but your professional ones as well.  Effective Listening requires the right attitude, posture, eye contact and eliminating distractions and can result in a strong impression.  It promotes a sense that both people are sharing a conversation rather than one talking at the other. Can you hear me now?”
