Listening and Presence
In a world powered by social media and isolation, how do we learn to more deeply connect with other humans? What happens when we practice engaging while setting aside our own agenda? How can we practice the art of deep listening and learn to communicate in ways that are grounded in who we uniquely are?
This training is adapted from theatre techniques and exercises intended to foster connections between participants. Using structured improvs that invite us to stay in the present, we are prevented from being able to think ahead. Our partner becomes our lifeline and we realize that it is through listening and observing them that we find our next steps together.
In the fields of science, social work, psychology, law, nursing, medicine, and beyond, there is benefit in having space to practice listening and engagement skills.
We will collaborate with you to create listening exchanges and simulations that are tailored to your organization's needs.
