ECHO Personal Listening Profile

What is ECHO?

ECHO stands for Effective Communication for Healthy Organizations.

The ECHO Listening assessment and training program aims to change the way the world thinks about listening. People spend 70-80% of their workday engaged in some form of communication, and 55% of that time is devoted to listening. At the day-to-day level, effective listening can mean the difference between closing a sale, understanding critical directives, and being able to form deeper connections amongst colleagues.

ECHO doesn’t just teach active listening. Rather, the assessment harnesses the latest research that suggests listening is a trainable skill with applications beyond just paying better attention.

Where does ECHO Certification take place?

This is a 3-week, online course that meets weekly via live video conferencing. The ECHO Listening Assessment Certification uses Zoom for all live sessions.

Online training is frequently dismissed as a viable way to promote discussions. However, this course is designed to mirror the discussions that you would have in an in-person course through the use of break-out rooms. Prior to each session, you will complete pre-work that you will then use in discussions and activities during the live session.
