Listening as a Skill - FREE for RBKC Enterprise Week

  • Kensington Creates 1 Silchester Road London, England, W10 6EX United Kingdom (map)

Are You a Good Listener?

Kensington Creates is thrilled to host another FREE workshop for RBKC Enterprise Week 2018. This workshop applies to professionals and individuals, and will aim to provide you with a deeper understanding of Listening as a skill that you can train and develop, and the insights that often come from this.

In the workshop you'll be given opportunity to listen, as well as speak and be listened to. Various examples will be used to illustrate different "levels" of listening, and we will explore some techniques that can be used as a listener to boost engagement and retain information. As the organiser it's my aim that every participant leaves having learned something about themselves as a listener.

Why is Listening Important?

The skill of Listening isn't only about processing information, nor is it only about auditory information. Listening can be an indicator of thought and feeling, and can be used to communicate, not only to receive communications. Understanding how to listen to more than words is a crucial skill for leaders. Understanding yourself as a listener can transform your abilities to communicate, and uncovering how to truly listen to yourself can lead you to deep insight.
