"Using this as professional development has been great for my team and me -- it's something that's impactful across all of our functions."
"I’ve discovered that I’m rarely doing one thing at a time and therefore, nothing is getting my full attention. When I’m watching television, I’m also working a crossword puzzle. When I’m talking on the telephone, I’m also scanning an article, checking my email, Googling something, or playing Words With Friends. I honestly didn’t realize that I live one big distraction."
"It was interesting to me to realize how many distractions we have without noticing when we are trying to listen."
"I have been trying to be more conscientious during meetings."
"I take a lot of notes in meetings, but I am trying to view how the person I am listening to perceives me in the process."
"Great class Kai, you do cover lots of content in a short time. Thanks for being so organized."
"This is valuable, and I expect to use the content at a meeting tonight."
"I approached the meeting with the belief that the other participants had goals that were just as important as mine and ideas that were just as good as mine, and I tried to use my own skills to develop and promote their ideas and perspectives rather than my own.
Listening here provides the opportunity to find the best ideas and come to the best decisions, even if they’re not the ones I would have supported from the outset."
Kai Degner has a range of experience that informs his training, speaking, and consulting. His experience in multiple sectors lets him integrate anecdotes and custom examples that fit many contexts and leadership applications.
I can't wait to start working together!
Thanks for listening.
