Are you listening?

"Why is it that we seem astonished, even grateful, when someone really hears us?" — Bobette Buster
Personal Effectiveness
Wednesday 7 October
3:00pm4:15pm UK time

Take your listening skills to the next level, for transformative impact on your most important relationships.

People want to be heard more than people want to be right. And so active, attentive and practiced listening skills will lead to stronger and more empathetic relationships, and in turn to new ideas and perspectives.

From quietening our inner-interrupters, to calibrating our questions; listening for metaphor to paraphrasing purposefully — this interactive, online session is all about discovering practical and highly effective ways to take our listening to the next level, and in the process enriching our interactions with everyone around us.

Expect an immersive and interactive experience, among a supportive group of peers.

What we'll cover:

• What stops us from listening
• Levels of listening, and tools for moving through them
• Knowing our inner-interrupters, and silencing them
• The power of paraphrasing, and other active listening techniques
• How to ask great questions
• Finding focus on others

We'll share the session slides so you can revisit and replay key ideas among your team.

How the session will be structured:

Expect an energising mix of instruction, discussion and putting new approaches into glorious practice right away.

Who the session's for:

Anyone looking to supersize their listening skills among a supportive group of peers.
