About The Summiting Session

Why do children complain that their parents don’t listen to them… while parents have the same complaint?

Why do many people think about what to say next instead of listening when in a conversation?

Why are you so often interrupted before you finish what you are saying?

It’s all about listening!

In this session, you will learn:

  • What causes the above-mentioned problems
  • Why listening is vital for effective communication
  • The FPL principle to enable you to become a better listener
