Workshop Description:

Listening is very different from hearing. If we listen intently, we will be able to recite back what the other person says. At the same time, we often hear based on what we believe the person is saying, or their intent. Our own experiences, both positive and negative, can impact both the way we speak/act as well as the way we listen/interpret. In this session, we discuss courageous conversations and how to unpack difficult moments to be able to grow through them rather than be stunted by them. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Attendees will understand the impact of our surroundings on the development of implicit biases.
  2. Attendees will reflect on personally held biases and differentiate from core beliefs.
  3. Attendees will understand the role of stories we tell ourselves when entering into conversations.

This program is ideal for: all people looking to communicate in a stronger fashion. 


This virtual professional development is available to current Zionsville Chamber of Commerce members (and employees of member businesses) at no cost.
