Event description
When was the last time you felt really listened to? How do you listen to someone so that they would feel safe, connected & empowered?

About this event

Listening deeply to others can be challenging due to the sheer amount of information, priorities, noise and distractions we have to manage daily.

On the other hand the experience of true listening (to oneself and others) can be a way to feel present, connected and empowered.

Deep listening requires understanding and practice. If listening is something you value, join us on this interactive online (Zoom) gathering to unpack the mechanics of this critical interpersonal, relationship-building skill.

  • Learn to tune in to yourself and activate your “3rd ear”,
  • Discover the self-as-instrument to decipher what others are saying and not saying,
  • Learn how deep listening can be a conduit for building trust and strengthening connection.

Facilitated by Aurora Aritao PCC and Sebastien Baert ACC both graduates of INSEAD's Executive Masters in Change. Aurora and Sebastien work with leaders and teams to create adaptive and resilient cultures.
