Mindful Listening and Meaningful Discourse
About the Workshop
Conversation is not just about what is being said, it’s also about listening to what is being said. About 50-75 percent of our daily communication time is spent listening, yet somehow, we are never taught to effectively listen. In fact, there is a great cost of not listening – for you, your organization, and your relationships. During this workshop, participants will explore, develop and practice their active listening skills through hands-on exercises. Additionally, participants will explore skills to help them engage productively in civil and civic discourse – engaging in conversations to enhance understanding.
By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the critical difference between active and passive listening behaviors, including the barriers to active listening
- Practice active listening skills
- Learn and practice strategies to productively engage in civil/civic discourse
