How to Become a Good Listener

13 November 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

£8.00 – £12

Listening is one of your most important life skills. You become a good listener when you take the time to truly hear and understand what people are saying to you. 

When you do that, your relationship with everyone improves instantly. Being a good listener enables you to deepen the connection you have with everyone in your life - family, friends, work colleagues or strangers in the street.

All of us are capable of listening but very few of us do it well enough.  Yet deep listening is the essential ingredient for building trust, developing better relationships and improving communications in all of our relationships. 



During this interactive session, you will

  • experience the difference between hearing and listening
  • learn how to listen at a very deep level
  • discover what it feels like when you are truly heard
  • and much much more.
