Empowered By Listening
Would you like to work in an environment where you and others are being listened powerfully?
Empowered by Listening SM, challenges participants to inquire into the phenomena of speaking and listening. Participants will personally examine their points of view and concerns that get in the way of hearing what someone is saying and precisely conveying that to someone else. Each of us have experienced at some point being misunderstood. We say one thing, someone else hears another. We direct a person to do something, the person ends up doing something else. It’s frustrating, frequent, and becomes particularly acute in cross-cultural communication.
Empowered by Listening is a fundamental inquiry and exploration of language and communication. It unfolds and expands our ability to listen and speak with intentionality; communicate responsibly and accurately; honor other points of view and create workability in our personal lives and our organizations.
