Hi there and welcome back to the Art of Business English. This week I am flying solo and I have put together a quick episode on how to be a better listener and generate useful comments, feedback and questions during meetings or presentations.
As some of you may know, currently the AOBE small group coaching programme is underway and we have been covering many topics and this is one that has popped up. I developed this material for one of the participants, Esteban and I thought that I would share it with the rest of you as it is very helpful.
So, today we are going to look at how to be a better listener. Firstly, I will be sharing my advice with you and then I am going to explain how you can implement the advice and finally we will be looking at all of the language and expressions that you can use.
So, let’s not waste any time and get things started.
