Overview

When we take the time to engage in active listening, we learn a lot. We learn about the other person and hear his or her real struggles, joys, and needs. We also learn about our own tendencies—whether that's a desire to jump in too soon, stop listening to figure out our response, or pay attention to the more exciting conversation at the next table.

But listening well is hard work! And unfortunately, most of us don't know how to listen all that well. Use this resource to gain some expert, field-tested guidance for helping your group members become great listeners. You'll learn how to set the stage for an emotionally safe group and learn keys to good listening that you can share with group members. But be warned: it all starts with your example, leader. Your group members will follow what you model.

For a sample from this resource, see Show Them How.
