Listening is often thought of as passive, but effective listening goes beyond hearing – it is a skill as important as speaking and a vital part of communication. Beyond the benefits to professional and interpersonal relationships, deep listening also fosters confidence and facilitates clarity. According to Oscar Trimboli, that clarity creates change.
Trimboli, author of Breakthroughs: How to Confront Assumptions and Deep Listening: Impact Beyond Words, has taught, mentored and advised leaders in a diverse range of industries. The son of Italian immigrants, a young Oscar honed his listening and communication skills while playing cards with his classmates from around the world. Now, executives call on Oscar to help them improve their communication skills through the power of listening.
