ECHO Listening Assessment Certification

Become Certified in the ECHO Listening Assessment

ECHO Personal Listening Profile

The ECHO Certification course is designed to help coaches, trainers/facilitators, HR, and L&D Professionals learn how to effectively use the ECHO Listening assessment and training program. 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.

Here is a breakdown of what you can expect from the ECHO Certification course:

  • 10 hours of live, application-focused, learning and discussions
  • Understand best practices for utilizing the ECHO Listening Profile with clients or employees.
  • Develop an expert understanding of the four foundational listening preferences.
  • Master the distinction between the 41 profiles.
  • Become proficient in the interpretation of both individual and group profile results.
  • Practice administering both the individual and group profile reports.

Where are the live online ECHO Listening Assessment Certification sessions held?

The ECHO Listening Assessment Certification uses Zoom‘s webinar platform.

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.
