Good communication is one of the most valuable skills in any organization. And effective listening skills are critical to communicating productively inside the organization and meeting the competitive challenges outside the organization. The Personal Listening Profile helps people become effective active, purposeful listeners in multiple situations resulting in more productive communication.

Discover the Impact of Five Listening Approaches

It’s estimated that people screen out or change the intended purpose of what they hear in over 70% of all communications. The major factor contributing to these mis-communications is our listening approach. Behavioral research indicates that people listen with a preferred listening approach.

The Personal Listening Profile® describes five listening approaches:

  • Appreciative: Listens in a relaxed manner, seeking enjoyment, entertainment, or inspiration
  • Empathic: Listens without judging, is supportive of the speaker, and learns from the experiences of others
  • Comprehensive: Listens to organize and make sense of information by understanding relationships among ideas
  • Discerning: Listens to get complete information, understand the main message, and determine important details
  • Evaluative: Listens in order to make a decision based on information provided and may accept or reject message based on personal beliefs
  • Match Listening Approaches to Communication Needs

The Personal Listening Profile® helps people in your organization:

  • discover their natural approach to listening
  • capitalize on their listening strengths
