How effective are your listening skills? And how much stronger would your relationship be if you could “listen like a dog?” Dogs instinctively know not to interrupt us, finish our sentences, and offer unsolicited advice or text us instead of talking to us. And if we’re smart, asserts best-selling author Jeff Lazarus, we’ll strive to be more like them.
Citing a Cornell study’s finding that we have one-third fewer good friends now than we did before social media came along, Jeff will share the mistakes we make when we think we are communicating. A health science consultant with an MBA from Pepperdine University, Jeff taught public speaking at the university level and conducted numerous workshops on listening, presentation skills, and customer engagement.
His new book “Listen Like a Dog” was inspired by his late dog Roamy and is the follow-up to his #1 bestseller, “Dogtology.” The book’s website is www.listenlikeadog.com.
