Join Us For a Workshop

Focused Listening

with: Paul Axtell


Focused listening has four elements; it is patient, attentive, non-judgmental, and focused. Listening is at the heart of effective conversation and the level of attention determines the quality of the speaking in a conversation. Listening in a profound way is still missing for most of us. We just never seem to get fully heard—at least not at the level that allows us to speak authentically and creatively. This session will include five rounds of practice. In preparation, please make listening your first move and then center of your focus in all conversations between now and when we meet.


Date: Wednesday, April 15

Time: 8:30 – 12:00

Location: Broadway Commons, 1300 Broadway St. NE Salem

Cost: $49.00 (includes coffee and workshop materials)
