Personal Listening Profile Online Version

The 16 page Personal Listening Profile Online Report includes a Communication Gap Analysis, an at-a-glance look at how the respondent's strengths and weaknesses relate to the intended message of the speaker. Another great new feature is enhanced action planning, which encourages people to reflect on how their listening style interacts with that of others and helps them develop strategies for reducing miscommunication with these specific people.

Discover the Impact of Five Listening Approaches

It's estimated that people screen out or change the intended purpose of what they hear in over 70% of all communications! The biggest factor contributing to such miscommunication is our listening approach. Behavioral research shows that people listen with a preferred listening approach. The Personal Listening Profile research describes five listening approaches:

  • Appreciative: listens in a relaxed manner, seeking enjoyment, entertainment or inspiration
  • Empathic: listens without judging, is supportive of speaker and learns from the experiences of others
  • Comprehensive: listens to organize and make sense of information by understanding relationships among ideas
  • Discerning: listens to get complete information, understand main message and determine important details
  • Evaluative: listens in order to make a decision based on information provided and may accept or reject message based on personal beliefs

The Personal Listening Profile helps people in your organization:

  • discover their natural approach to listening
  • capitalize on their listening strengths
  • learn how listening approaches impact listening effectiveness
  • improve their ability to understand the purpose of different communications
  • use listening approaches appropriate to the communication
  • overcome listening barriers and reduce conflict
  • enhance individual and team performance

Effective Communication is Built on Effective Listening

The Personal Listening Profile also helps people to see that their preferred listening approach may not be appropriate to every situation. They learn when and how to adopt another listening approach for more successful communication.
