What’s it all about?

Have you ever felt stuck in a conversation or in a relationship? As if you were unable to overcome obstacles and to move forward?

Active listening helps us to transform awkward conversations into new worlds of possibilities. We can use it to connect with others, and to learn more about ourselves.

What will we cover?

How does active listening work? And how can we use it in our own lives? This fun, interactive workshop will encourage you to use your own experiences to find out.

In this workshop we will look at:

  • Non-verbal communication
  • Emotions and communication
  • Navigating awkward social moments
  • Creative communication

We will work on our listening skills through exercises, discussion and reflection. Plus, we’ll learn about active listening theories.
