Growing Up Listening
The Joel Cohen Group, LLC.

Listening is so important to The Joel Cohen Group that we wanted to make a special tab. It is the core of who we are and how together, we develop your Management Master Plan.

We listen to you.

An organization cannot discuss expertise without having experience in achieving successful results. Expertise is accomplished, not given. Through the consistent years of listening and learning, a business methodology was formed. Through experience and analysis, a set of principles, rules and procedures developed, which consistently will show positive results.

We listen to results.

Our Management Master Plan is a combination of our core promise, which is listening. By hearing experts in different fields of sports and entertainment management, we take what is good and apply that to our business methodology.

To achieve sustainable success, it is the execution of the business methodology that will generate long-term revenue success.

When you listen, you:

  • Remember names and facts correctly.
  • Hear between the lines.
  • Show respect.
  • Learn more about what's going on within your workplace.

Here are 10 tips to be a better listener:

  1. Look at the person speaking to you. Maintain eye contact.
  2. Watch for non-verbal clues: body language, gestures and facial expressions.
  3. Eliminate all distractions. Don't multitask.
  4. Ask questions that let the other person know you heard him and want to learn more.
  5. Don't interrupt.
  6. Don't finish the other person's sentences.
  7. Avoid using words such as "no," "but" and "however" when you respond.
  8. Don't prejudge.
  9. Display a friendly, open attitude and body language.
  10. Ask questions to clarify what you heard.
