One of the most common complaints about leaders is "they just don't listen!" What does it mean to listen deeply and respond from a thoughtful and reflective place, whether leading a study group, a campus organization or a business? Through structured exercises and reflection facilitated by staff from the Public Conversations Project, participants will gain a clearer sense of their own "center," how to listen with resilience to difficult feedback, and learn to listen for the hope within the concern, the solution within the complaint, and the interest within the position.
