“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”
According to research cited by Wright State University, while most people believe they are good listeners who don’t need to improve their listening skills, the average person listens at only about 25 percent efficiency.
The article goes on to state, “Research has found that by listening effectively, you will get more information from the people you manage, you will increase others’ trust in you, you will reduce conflict, you will better understand how to motivate others, and you will inspire a higher level of commitment in the people you manage.”

When Alan showed me the Pinch Crunch model that explains how to maintain a healthy lasting relationship I understood what went wrong between my ex husband and myself.
If I had known this back then, things might have been different.
As for the future I am confident that my next relationship will be stronger because of this knowledge. Now I want the skills so I don't make the same mistakes again.
Lorraine Garvie // CEO District32
As a single Mum I needed someone to talk to, someone to really listen to me.
Alan gave me the insights that enabled me to see the possibilities and choices I have. I recognised some deep seated beliefs that, as an adult, were no longer valid.
The clarity and understanding I now had showed me how to find my own solutions. Being able to talk it through and not be judged was so refreshing and helpful.
One thing I know for sure, when my next relationship arrives it will be very different and I will have the tools to give it the best shot at lasting a lifetime.
I am now going to encourage my daughter to take the course because it will help her avoid the problems I have had.

How many times have you told someone about a problem you have and they leap in immediately with a solution. It is frustrating because all you wanted to do is talk it through. You weren't looking for a solution but you got one anyway.
The goal of this course is to give you the skills to listen deeply. It is NOT your job to FIX the other person. Your job is to listen between the lines, without judgement and feedback to the person what they reveal to you.
Your task is to bring the insight they give you and help them bring it into their conscious awareness. Then they can resolve the issues themselves. What they choose to do with it is their responsibility - not yours.
You set them free and empowered them with the ability to deal wit their own issues. You will have heard of the saying, If you give a man a fish you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish you feed him for a lifetime.
Our goal is to empower you and for you to empower others.

Module 1: The problem isn't that we don't want to listen we just don't know how.
Before we can improve listening skills we need to know why most people don't listen effectively. And that's what we explore in the 1ts module.
When I first learned about this information I was amazed.
Module 2. Now that we know This module starts with basic skills such as Paraphrase, Curiosity Questions, Perception Check, and behaviour description.
We then move onto some advanced skills including...
Metaphor Magic, Polarity Listening, Belief Systems Revealed, and dealing with emotions and criticism are some of the skills included in this module.
When I had learned these skills I wondered why they aren't taught in schools.
Now you know what happens and have the tools to listen mindfully you need to embed the information and the skills into your long-term memory.
We do this providing you with the opportunities to experience and practice the skills. Then you're ready to share your new abilities helping others.
It was only by experiencing and practicing the skills that I was able to 'Listen' and make a difference helping other people.
Alan Cox // Author
Alan has worked in the communication industry all his working life.
In the late 90s Alan attended a Listening Skills 5 day workshop. The following year he was trained by the author of the course to facilitate it.
Since then he has led the course numerous times and listen to people from all walks of life.
Using his extensive experience in crafting videos that deliver the message he has converted his knowledge into this online Mindful Listening Course.
He met his wife Mary when they were 16 and they are still living happy together..
For business, the information in the 'Departure Lounge' videos is invaluable.
Imagine being able to 'hear' when your most indispensable employee is thinking of resigning or your best customer is about to take their business elsewhere.
Dean keating // Director District32
As a psychologist I try to remove technical terms and jargon from my writing but it's hard. Alan has captured complex concepts transforming information into easy to understand everyday language.
I have never heard communication described so simply. Bye the way, some of the information Alan provides was new to me.

To make the learning effective the average length of videos is only 6 minutes. For example, the Departure Lounge lecture consists of 5 videos. Each video deals with one aspect. One topic per video makes it easy to watch and understand.
This course goes into substantial depth. For example, we don't just tell that you automatic hidden responses to certain situations we show you how to identify them. If they are still valid keep them. if not ditch them.
Immediately. When you have listened to the Metaphor videos you can apply it straight away.
I do have one word of caution.
Make sure you have a high level of trust before to do a Story Check on someone because they might think you're a psychic. :)
