Personal Listening Profile® Facilitator Kit


Discover the Impact of Different Listening Approaches
Behavioral research shows that people approach listening with different purposes and motivations. The Personal Listening Profile helps people discover their most natural approach to listening and gain insight into the listening approaches of others. Participants will discover that their preferred listening approach may not be appropriate to every situation, and learn how to adopt another listening approach for more successful communication.

The Facilitator Kit includes classroom training lesson plans in a modular format, allowing you to customize your program to include only lessons relevant to your training needs. The Facilitator Kit is delivered on a USB drive, and supports both versions of the Personal Listening Profile – the EPIC version and the paper version.
