Workshop Synopsis:

Listening Unleashed
Character Counts. Values Matter. Wednesday, we started with becoming aware of several levels to listening. Who knew! We then went into working with each other in learning techniques in stepping out of the box and look at the various mentoring tools. Specific tools. Now we move into the global scenarios. After discussing interpreting scenarios, we will then move into breakout rooms, to discuss three group observations: 1. Self-Care. 2. POV (their). 3. Decisions / Values. And each group will be called upon to share – smile!!!

Do we learn instantly? Do we assimilate information into our neocortex and shine from observing? The skill of gathering information is easier when we step into inquiry and reflect our understanding with others. Listening to a small group explain the reason behind their decisions – I always learn from other’s perspective. Remember, we cherish your point of view as well. Join us.
