The world is a noisy place where you fight to be heard every day. Despite the fact that we have been taught at home and at school how to speak, none of us have had any training in how to listen. Multiple academic studies have shown that between 50% and 55% of your working day is spent listening, yet only 2% of people have been trained in how to listen.

We feel frustrated,isolated and confused because we aren't heard.

As a speaker, it takes absolutely no training to notice when someone isn't listening - they're distracted, they interrupt or drift away as you talk.

Yet the opposite is also true, without any training in how to listen we struggle to stay connected with the speaker and the discussion.

This results in unproductive workplaces where people fight to be heard and need to repeat themselves constantly, send emails to confirm what they said and then have follow-up meetings to ensure what was said was actually heard by those in the meeting. It's a downward spiral that drains energy from every conversation and reduces the productivity of organisations.

This podcast is about creating practical tips and techniques to improve your daily listening.

Hugely relevant and insightful

At the pace we operate in, and the war for our attention, focused listening is truly a rare commodity. When we experience it we immediately know it and the exchange is elevated.

I live in an urban centre and spend time every day commuting which I aspired to make more productive. Oscar’s Deep Listening podcast has been a perfect resolution. The guests are varied, the interviews genuine and authentic, and Oscar is clearly an authority over this remarkable skill.

I learn from every episode

Each episode gives me another thought provoking perspective on how I can be a better listener. It also gives me tips to improve my overall communication. I’m daily quoting to my work colleagues “In Oscar Trimboli’s podcast today, I learnt.....”. It’s a great way to learn on a daily commute. Highly recommended.

This is a great listen

The focus on listening is something that we often forget to do. Thank you Oscar for providing a way for me to see how it impacts so many areas and highlight role models that show why it is so important to train ourselves.
