Improving Workplace Performance by Understanding How Typically Hearing People Hear and Communicate
Executive Summary:
Simply hearing the informational content of words is one thing, but understanding the impact of hearing loss on the brain and body is far wider than most people appreciate. In this webinar, Dr. Ruffin shares both science-based and personal recommendations working in a challenging, fast-paced work environment.

Background:
Hearing loss goes beyond just hearing spoken words:

1) It can worsen social cognition, particularly expressive communication and soft skills.

2) Hearing occurs within the brain, not the ears. The brain undergoes significant changes as a result of hearing loss.

So, the brain’s processing power is diverted to repairing hearing and conversation instead of focusing exclusively on the meaning of the conversation itself and forging strong connections with others. This affects how those with hearing loss process information and express themselves in many settings like the workplace.

What You’ll Gain:
Dr. Ruffin experiences many environments—especially in the workplace—where there is a lot of background noise. He also works with people of all educational backgrounds to process complex concepts on the fly. In this webinar, he will share with you the techniques, grounded in research, that are designed to help those with hearing loss like himself perform at a high-level.
