Listen Like a Leader

To lead, we must first listen

We believe that Truly Human Leadership requires a commitment to building strong relationships. So much so, that all 11,000+ Barry-Wehmiller associates are offered the opportunity to participate in this foundational course, a three-day exploration of interpersonal communication.  Overwhelmingly, graduates of the course express appreciation for the deep dive into the listening process, the most helpful thing a leader can do.
