INTERNATIONAL DAY OF LISTENING 2021: LISTEN TO CONNECT
On Thursday, September 16, the International Listening Association (ILA) celebrates the sixth edition of the International Day of Listening. A space to learn about listening from researchers and professionals from around the world. This year, the main theme is "Listen to Connect".
We encourage you to visit https://internationaldayoflistening.com/ to discover the true power of listening to help people connect with others, with the world and with themselves.
And you, do you take advantage of the power of listening to connect with the reality around you and with yourself? Do you reserve spaces in your daily life to listen deeply and listen to yourself? Connect with the Active Listening Center and we will help you to develop your potential to practice a transformative and fulfilling listening.
ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE MAGAZINE S-MODA (EL PAÍS)
The Center for Active Listening (Learnability) has collaborated in the article published in the magazine S-Moda (El País), "Cuando hablar nos gusta más que escuchar: cómo practicar la escucha activa" (When we like talking more than listening: how to practice active listening). Consuelo Valbuena, director of CEA, analyzes the impact of listening on the human being, and reflects on the importance of listening in various fields (education, business and daily life), emphasizing the excess of noise and the need to make space to listen, starting with ourselves.
