Teachers Talking Active Listening
Monday, March 7, 2011 (Around 4 years ago)
Join us on April 14 for a Teachers Talking on Active Listening. How much of what your colleagues, students and advisees are saying do you think you are really hearing? Do you think the speakers are feeling truly heard and understood? You may be surprised. Active listening is a way of engaging with a person to better understand what s/he is trying to communicate. This skill is associated with more constructive communication by improving comprehension, reducing/avoiding conflict and promoting cooperation. Please join Hannah Godbout and Lisa Rinehart, members of the Counseling Center, for a brief presentation on active listening skills and some opportunities to put the skill into practice! Program runs at 11:30 a.m. and at 12:30 pm. Free lunch at Three Crowns buffet, then meet in St Peter Room.
