ACTIVE LISTENING CENTRE
- RESEARCH - Our principal lines of research are focussed on:
- Active listening as a key element and avenue towards conscious decision-making and a broadening of the capacity for learning.
- Transformative systems and spaces, especially within the field of education.
- Key elements in personal, group, organisational and social motivation.
- The design and development of systems of analysis and reflection for the creation of data narratives as an experience of learning and discovery.
The Active Listening Centre works with other teams in a wide range of projects, always with a common denominator: listening to others and to oneself.
The following model illustrated our work methodology:
Listening: The first phase of any project starts with a pre-diagnostic of the reality in which we will be working. Once we have listened to this reality, we can create a diagnostic for the design of a listening dynamic for the following phase.
Co-create: In this phase, the agents involved are called to work together in a co-creative dynamic of listening to achieve the proposed objectives. Some of these objectives are: Conflict management, team building, student experience, design of improvement plans, etc.
Integrative intelligence: The key element in making the gears work is the capacity for people to deploy their capacity for connecting and integrating what they know from experience (past) with what reality tells us (present) and what they apprehend (future). At the Centre for Active Learning we accompany people throughout this process in developing their integrative intelligence.
Delivery: All listening dynamics end with an action plan proposed by the people involved. Now what? What are the next steps to achieve our goals? At the Centre for Active Listening we believe that true change comes not only from analysing the past (feedback) but from projecting ourselves into the future (feedforward), taking action and evaluating the impact to begin a new cycle.
After the co-creation session and the creation of an action plan, the follow-up phase begins, to evaluate the transformative impact of active listening. The cycle of follow-up is shown below.
Here you will find information on all the events we have organised to promote the importance of active listening in our personal and professional experience.
