Building Communities That Listen with David Cooke
Time & Location
About The Event
In the “Building Communities that Listen” workshop, listening so others are heard and understood, is the core objective of this presentation. The key to effective listening behaviors is “Selfless Listening”, where the primary behavior is a commitment to comprehend another person’s worldview, without judgement, to discover how their perspective influences and defines their behaviors, decisions and outcomes. “Selfless Listening “creates an environment for safe, authentic collaboration, in order to build trust, solve problems, and facilitate change. While the outcome of these behaviors may seem the same as other listening workshops, the process is remarkably different, resulting in enhanced engagement, reduced resistance, and increased participation to the outcomes from the interaction.
Drawing on the “Communication Tension” information provided by members at the beginning of the presentation, Dave Cooke explores how this tension impacts their organization and provides insight into where each participant could benefit from adjusting their listening behaviors. Participants will be introduced to the four levels of Selfless Listening, while examining potential shifts in their own listening behaviors to eliminate the communication tension they are experiencing in their organizations.
