Publisher's Summary

Do you want to drastically improve your conversation skills? Understand the hidden meaning of what your interlocutor is saying? Deepen your relationships with your partners, friends, or coworkers?

Let me make a guess. If I ask you how you can improve your conversation, you’re immediately thinking about how to talk more, be more impactful, funny, and engaging.

I get it, we’re all the same. However, we can also agree that talking is only one half of every conversation. The rest of the time, you’re listening to your interlocutor talking. Or at least you should be.

But are you really? Most of us are so concerned by what they’re going to say next that they don’t really pay full attention to what other people are saying. We think we do, sure, but studies show that the average person listens with only about 25 percent efficiency.

How about you? Do you sometimes “wake up” in the middle of a conversation without the slightest idea of what your interlocutor is saying? Do you make people repeat themselves? Do you find it difficult to explore deeper subjects with people you don’t know very well?

If you recognized yourself in some of these sentences, then you need to learn active listening. It is a much underrated skill, especially in today’s society where everybody craves being the center of attention. Yet the payoff is enormous. Because when you’re listening closely enough, people will tell you what they really want or need. What they don’t dare to say out loud or just don’t know how to express.

And if you can be the one that “gets it”, then your relationships, whether in your business, social, or romantic life, will skyrocket to a whole different level of connection and trust.

This audiobook will teach you how. Inside you’ll learn:

  • The secret way to read between the lines and understand the deeper meaning behind the words
  • How to be present instead of passive
  • How to never make someone repeat what they just said again
  • How to respond rather than react
  • How to read body language like an FBI agent; what the mouth won’t tell you, the body always will
  • Assumption: why it can ruin your social life and what to do about it
  • And much, much more 

You can become a better listener, even if you’re known for being distracted or never paying attention. Are you ready to find out what people have been trying to tell you for ages? Then buy and listen actively to this audiobook!
