Do you want to be a better listener?
Maybe you listen for a living and you could do with a professional support group where you not only develop your listening skills but you also get time and space to be heard and understood. A vital part of listening is being able to show up with an open mind, void of preconceptions, judgement and assumptions. This is challenging when our own mind is full of 'our stuff' that is constantly pushed aside to listen to others.
The Hampshire Listening Skills Practice Group is a space for us to be heard and explore what it means to be truly listened to. Each month we will have a different theme to explore, covering all the aspects of listening. From:
- How to ask good questions?
- How to calibrate if your listening is working?
- How many different kinds of listening are there and how do you know which one is needed?
- How to give and receive feeback?
- When to give feedback?
- The power of silence
- How to manage your emotional buttons?
- How to manage your critic?
- How to tame your time monsters?
