What Others Have Said

Pia Coyle, Ikon Communications

As a self-confessed talker, learning the skill of deep listening has proved hard, but absolutely invaluable. It is the game changer that turned me from a manager into a leader. Shutting my mouth was only step one. Oscar pushed me to quieten my mind and really listen. It’s transformed the way I communicate.

Oscar has identified the critical skill executives need to lead effectively, but which is often forgotten in a world where our attention span is defined by 140 characters. Deep listening creates trust and authentic action for leaders at all levels and is crucial to the development and retention of talent.
