When it comes to important conversations - don't underestimate the power of active listening.

Active listening is a real skill, and a difficult one to master.

But it can make a huge difference to the depth of a relationship and the trust between two people.

When practised with colleagues, it can turbo-charge collaboration, work engagement and professional output.

And when practised with customers or clients, it can transform business growth.

Active listening is one of the skills we help your people build at Fika Mental Fitness - improving connection skills by an average of 15%.

See below for a video of two of our Fika experts talking about the value of active listening.

Interested in learning how Fika can help your people learn to more actively listen to each other and your clients?

The Great Resignation: how to hold onto your staff by keeping them engaged

Recent reports into the great resignation suggest as many as a quarter of us are intending to leave our jobs within the next six months, and resignation rates are already at their highest since 2009. The financial impact of this mass exodus could be enormous, with the average cost of employee turnover in those earning over £25,000 a year estimated to be £30,614.
