Have you ever taken a small child out of doors, where birds are chirping, squirrels chattering, and wind was rustling leaves in the trees? You’ll know, then, the exhilarating power of listening. Leslie Shore–education professor, instructional designer, management consultant and inspirational speaker—helps people develop all kinds of listening abilities, including intra-personal and inter-personal skills. Few skills are as important as our ability to communicate. The largest part of “communicating” is being able to really listen! Come listen about listening!
The Exhilarating Power of Listening! When I started out working as a psychotherapist, some of the people I saw presented situations that were so difficult I was concerned I might be of little help to them. As I wrestled with this issue, I realized that few people have someone who will really listen to them—that if I did nothing more than listen, that was enough. It turned out to be a fantastic course of action! I build a nearly 45 year career on listening! I’m excited to learn more secrets about listening from Leslie Shore when she appears this week.
