Hearing is only one part of listening. In this active experience participants will practice going beyond words and tuning into what someone means. Through silly trust-building, anti-listening and application of true connection we will engage in practice to help us all listen with our whole self. 

The technique focused on in this session is motivational interviewing (MI), an evidence-based communication skill that helps evoke intrinsic motivation. Using MI can effectively support communication by encouraging a deeper understanding of one’s views and ideas for change. In this session everyone will learn about what MI is, how we can use it to successfully listen and support others in making positive change possible.

What will you learn or experience as a result of this program or session?
  • Define motivational interviewing.
  • Explore successful listening.
  • Experience aspects of motivational interviewing that can improve listening.

How might the content of this program or session change your perceptions, habits, ways of working, or view on the world?
  • Participants will be able to identify when they are NOT using successful listening skills.
  • Participants will be able to compare emotional exchange when using skills of MI versus when using other styles of communication.
  • Participants will identify self-perceptions of others and examine internal judgements that may get in the way of positive communication.

How might you apply what you learn or experience in this program or session?
  • Participants will be able to apply attributes of MI in future conversations when discussing change.
  • Participants will be able to set intentions for methods used in challenging conversations.
  • Participants will be able to seek additional areas of development to strengthen listening skills.
