Course description

Listening to Customers

We listen more than 80% during a day. As important as it is though, listening is also vastly misunderstood. Many people believe that because we can hear, we listen. We will look at some common listening myths you should be aware of. Discover the three phases of authentic listening and how you can use them to your advantage. Listening is the first step in understanding needs of others so that we can be effective problem solvers. We have five Listening courses available in this series that focus on authentic listening, increasing concentration, building curiosity, gaining clarity, critical listening. Each course averages 15 minutes to complete with a post assessment included for each course. The Application Activity forms will allow the participant to apply the learnings in their own scenario and environment. This selection of courses is intended for executives, managers, Call centre staff, and customer facing people who want to improve their leadership abilities. This course can be delivered in two formats. Regardless of learning method, participants will be fully supported in their journey by Chart Learning Solutions’ network of partners.


This option includes unlimited access to slide presentations, video lectures, interactive quizzes, and practical exercises. Participants in this course will also become part of a supportive student network.


The blended course options offers a mix of instructor-led and online training. This option is great for those who wish to combine online learning with more traditional classroom instruction.
