“How To Become A Better Listener” with Agnès Thöni

During this Practical Fridays workshop, Agnès Thöni taught everyone how to become a better listener.

Listening is not just hearing: to listen to someone means paying attention and making a conscious effort to process what you hear. But it also goes further than that. A good listener is not just good at listening but also at showing that he is listening. By making the speaker feel that she is being listened to, he is encouraging him to talk, bringing the conversation to a deeper level. This is often called active listening. We practiced, through several exercises, our capacity to pay attention and to actively listen.
