Description

Listening skills, led by Isla Lindsay

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WILL BE A SMALL, PRACTICAL GROUP SESSION AND PARTICIPANTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO HAVE MICROPHONES AND VIDEOS TURNED ON.

Listening is crucial to good communication. Effective listening conveys encouragement to others, improves relationships, resolves problems and enables a better understanding of people.

Actors recognise listening as a vital skill. They must actively listen and respond truthfully in the moment to ensure their interactions are believable.

This 1 hour Listening Skills workshop, led by a professional actor and communications coach, explores the differences between a given message and how that message is received. We’ll look at some top tips to improve listening skills and deeper our empathy and understanding of others.

Together, we’ll explore:

• Interest and empathy through active listening techniques

• Group dynamics and how to read a room

• Subtext: the difference between what people say and what they mean

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Each workshop focuses on a particular skill for business professionals and will offer quick-fire communication techniques to suit the group. We provide the tools to embed these practical techniques immediately. The sessions will be interactive in nature. As the sessions are focused on communication skills, participants will be required to switch on their microphone and camera. This way the tutor will be able to give personalised feedback in a constructive and positive framework.
