Listening Skills for Scientists and Researchers

Someone wise once said that humans have one mouth but two ears to show us just how important it is to listen.

About this course

Being a good listener allows you to connect and resonate in a whole new way. Listening not only makes other people feel valued, but active listening helps you to uncover potential problems by “listening to what people aren’t saying”, spot opportunities, and prevent misunderstandings that can result in failed projects and unhappy colleagues.

In the same way that you can learn to be a better presenter, you can learn to become a good listener: it’s a learned skill that gets better with practice. In this session, you’ll learn:

  • The power of attentive listening
  • Common challenges that lead us to be poor listeners
  • How to spot when we – and others – aren’t paying attention
  • How to recapture attention
  • How to make others feel heard
Listening skills


Scientists, researchers, and anyone who wants to become a better listener, stop alienating others, and become a better communicator by taking the time to really understand others.


Participants will learn how to identify bad listening habits and how to correct those habits to have more meaningful conversations with others. They will also learn to spot when other aren’t paying attention and how to regain attention.
