Active Listening

The dos and don'ts of constructive listening

Learning Objectives

The Active Listening scenario looks at a set of techniques that will help you build better relationships with the people around you.

  • Identify emotions in a conversation
  • Distinguish between good and poor active listening practices
  • Apply active listening techniques and behaviours in a practical scenario

The Scenario

You are meeting with Dave and Amy, 2 colleagues.

Dave just got feedback from his manager and is pretty upset. He needs to talk. Amy jumps in and tries to help out ... poorly.

Your first task is to observe Amy and identify poor active listening behaviours. Later, face-to-face with Dave, you will have a chance to practise your active listening skills and help him towards finding a solution.

This module is part of our Workplace Communications Essentials series.
