Were you taught how to ‘listen’ at school? Most people have been taught how to ‘read’, ‘write’ and ‘speak’, but the most used mode of communication ‘listen’ only has under 6 months of learning. According to C.H. Swanson, it is the most used mode of communication - 45% of time. Therefore, how can we be good listeners without the education and knowledge? Active Listening is a method to improve the Wellbeing of both the listener and speaker. There is more than ‘hearing’, it is includes non-verbal communication and skills. MMS runs Active Listening workshops to teach delegates how to use listening skills to build stronger relationships and positive connections. This can be in scenarios when delegates want to help the Wellbeing of others, understand how to self-care, and improve their work performance. This programme is 30 minutes + Q & A. This can also be 1 hour, if the latter is your preference please get in touch with GetZeN.

He broadened his marketing expertise to work in media agencies and ended up running a team of 40 people around the world for UBS. In 2013, MMS was founded to provide a consultancy service to all areas of business - client, suppliers, consultancies and associations.

  1. Will all employees be able to book programmes on the GetZeN platform?

    Bookings can only be made via allocated and registered contacts who can log in to their profile.

  2. Are individuals' names shared with the employee diagnostic outcomes?

    All names are anonymised and confidential. The diagnostic will only show the overall outcomes relating to anxiety, stress, energy, sense of wellbeing & productivity.

  3. Can we get in touch if we can’t find the programme we need?

    Of course, we work closely with all of our clients to find the right practitioner and programme to suit your needs.

  4. Do you have a library of pre-recorded content we can access?

    Not yet, that’s something we’re working on behind the scenes.

  5. Can I meet with the practitioner before the programme takes place?

    We go through an extremely thorough vetting process with all of our practitioners, so you can rest assured that they will be of the highest standard for your organisation. However, as we first start to work with clients we can organise a 10min introduction with our practitioners.

  6. How often will we receive the GetZeN diagnostic outcomes?

    For those who take part in the end to end GetZeN diagnostic, we will report quarterly. However, we are working towards a way where we can integrate this into your client profile so you can see the outcomes weekly.

  7. Can you offer taster sessions?

    We can do this, please get in touch to find out more.

  8. What happens if I need to reschedule or cancel a booking?

    Please see our T&C’s for rescheduling and cancellation policies.

  9. Will you be offering on-site services again?

    We monitor the government guidance closely and as soon as we can safely and responsibly provide programmes in your place of work we will be happy to.
