Would you like to understand and be understood more clearly in conversation? How about reducing conflict in your personal and professional relationships? Or maybe you'd like your children to open up and talk to you more. This engaging, hands-on workshop, led by Ted Klontz, Ph.D, will help you do all that and more. You will learn to "show" what you hear using the latest evidence based tools and techniques. This training is specifically designed to make conversation a visual experience as well as a listening one. This unique approach engages the entire brain; increasing our ability to hear others and be heard by others more deeply.
Experiential Listening shares and allows you to practice specific, hands on, evidence based tools and techniques designed to take advantage of what neuroscientist research is suggesting can be more effective ways of influencing behaviors. This program focuses on the theoretical basis for experiential learning, as well as the methods involved in the process. It also includes presentations, practice sessions, case studies and topical sessions. This workshop is specifically designed to co-create, share and practice tools that help us listen to others (and ourselves) more deeply and in a profound manner using activities that intentionally involve the sensory system in unique ways.
The schedule for these workshops varies by location. Please contact us directly with any questions.
