3 Reasons To Become An Expert Listener (hint: it has to do with your business)

A few weeks ago, I discovered that one of my workshop attendees is getting her M.F.A. in oil painting.

At a networking event, I chatted with a middle-aged manager type who told me all about his grandson’s snowboarding abilities.
