Session #2:

We are hearing each other. We are NOT listening to each other. Ineffective listening is a huge cost and may be one of the highest sources of risk you have. Establishing a clear, focused, and compassionate process to practice listening can inspire trust, build relationships, encourage followers, and produce sustainable results.

The workshop will have a mix of individual reflection, larger group sharing and pair and share opportunities. Follow-up “check-in” meeting(s) – group or individual – available as additional consulting engagement. Pre-work might be assigned depending on the group goals. This workshop can be customized to align closely to organizational/team business goals.

  1. Become aware of how you listen and how you manage distractions
  2. Practice practice tools for wholehearted listening
  3. Learn how to build psychological safety in relationships/conversations
  4. Build a conversational toolkit to connect, inspire and challenge with respect
This program is ideal for: Listening as a practice is a common thread across all levels in an organization.
