And so we try to listen harder. But while presence is important, it’s only one ingredient to effective listening.
Effective listening is actually like an improvisational dance.
Someone says something, and you point out something that really resonated or some body language that didn't match the words expressed or a scrunched-up expression that showed up. That pointing focuses and shifts the conversation, moving it toward what’s really important. By articulating what’s going on, you take the conversation one level deeper than previously possible.
This may seem magical—and the impact can be—but it's actually very learnable.
In fact, we learned to do this ourselves as we trained to become the leadership coaches that we are today. Effective listening has become a core skill that we leverage in all our relationships—whether at work, with clients, with friends, and even in our marriages. And we’re going to teach you how to do it too.
In this online, experiential workshop, you’ll see what effective listening looks like and we’ll show you powerful tools for tuning into what people aren’t saying. Through a series of demos, exercises, and discussions, you'll leave feeling like you have a newfound ability to listen to what’s going on around you.
