Do you really listen?

Cette conférence sera donnée en anglais.


This is a 45 minute talk with interactive moments where people can reflect on their listening style.

At school we learn to read and write - yet practicing and attuning to how we listen is rarely practiced. Listening is fundamental to Design. We talk a big game about empathy and understanding users' needs so let's take time to reflect and intentionally practice our skills as listeners.

You will practice:

  • Being grounded and present during conversations
  • How to listen when lots of thoughts are floating around in your head
  • How to listen not to understand not to respond
  • Ways to facilitate an open, focused and creative listening style amongst teams
  • Ways to create a conversation environment hears all voices
  • Clarity and consciousness in listening and responding

If you do any type of research or are just a human out in the world - let's do everyone a favor by taking the time to reflect and improve how we listen.

La conférence est présentée par Alex Rust.
