Don Harris, Founder, TalkBack
What he stands for and his offering
I have enjoyed a long association with marketing, radio and people focused communication.
Over my 30 year’s working with clients, management and employees to assist them with Engagement and Internal Communication and more productive ways to work together, I have found that by encouraging dialogue, creativity flourishes.
Listening to what your people have to say is one of the most powerful compliments and forms of recognition you can bestow upon them. Along the way you will get to know some truly remarkable people in the process.
I believe active listening, sometimes known as empathic communication, is the bedrock upon which great working relationships are formed and maintained in the workplace. How people interact, listen, talk and communicate at work is key to any leadership programme or strategy in order for a successful outcome.
I have a passion for leading people towards discovering their strengths and identifying areas where scope for development may be unearthed.
