Connecting Through Listening

Learn how to listen to understand, not to reply

Listening is the most fundamental interpersonal skill – and for many students, it’s also the most challenging to develop.

How students listen has a major impact on their ability to build successful and meaningful professional relationships. And in this fast-paced, ever-changing, multi-cultural modern world, listening and connecting are more important than ever.

In this guest lecture, students will learn to approach listening differently and develop highly personalized techniques to consistently create safe, inclusive environments for themselves and others.

Your students will learn listening techniques for how to make others feel seen, heard, and understood.
