Listening as Innovation
Call them out-
for others to listen to
and with us.
So you are not just the deliverer of a pre-formed experience…you may have skills, or a message, or information to move into the room…but, if the experience you create/shape/lead/offer is a sealed self-contained event, you can’t take advantage of the greatest thing you have going for you- the possibility of real exchange and growth on all sides…
…the kind of listening that allows what you hear to impact what you do?
…to explore what listening has to offer the practice of building healthier, more functional communities…from our schools to our spaces of public decision-making.
