Mindful Agile: Listen like Buddha, build leaders like a 'BOSS' (Todd Wilson, John Nicol)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


Abstract:
The measure of a successful leader is not in the number of followers they have, rather it's how many leaders they have been able to develop. We know from Sir Richard Branson, Eileen Fisher and other inspirational leaders that their success is partially attributed to their capacity for mindful listening. Through observation over the past 20 years we know that our ability to transform a company is directly correlated to our ability to harness transparency and openness. To do this we need to develop great listening skills throughout the organization. This workshop has been designed to awaken your sense of listening with concrete patterns and practices. We cut through the phenomena of listening and teach you how to observe it in real-time. We will show you how to enter into a state of flow thereby slowing down the conversation with your own mind. When mastered you develop a true superpower.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Demonstrate your ability to identify and practice 4 levels of listening: Downloading, Factual, Empathic, Generative. We will also demonstrate patterns that you can continue to use at work or in life to grow your capacity to listen.
