|Keynote at Family & Friends Preview Weekend|
Listening Pays: Achieve Significance Through the Power of Listening
by Dr. Rick Bommelje
Saturday, June 15
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Location: Knowles Memorial Chapel
All Crummer alumni are invited to the Rollins MBA Preview Weekend Keynote address by Dr. Rick Bommelje. Listening - it seems so simple. Yet, it's estimated that the average person ignores, forgets, or misunderstands at least 75% of what he or she hears. Is it any wonder that mistakes occur, opportunities are missed, or that the "I'll take care of it!" never happens? Most people are much better at hearing themselves talk than they are at listening to what others say. The value of listening goes far beyond common courtesy. It is fundamental to effective leadership and team success. Dr. Bommelje will lead you through a practical and engaging session that will heighten your awareness of this critical leadership success skill. Click here to register to attend.
