What you will learn:

We don't learn by simply experiencing something. We learn by reflecting on what we experienced. Active learning is a powerful skill used by the best performers and professional athletes in the world. Active listening is a highly underrated life and leadership skill. In this pilot, you’ll reflect on your most recent personal learnings (from the past year, 1/2 year or quarter) while practicing this dynamic skill duo.

Outcomes of this Elective Course:
  1. Understand three levels of listening and active learning concepts.
  2. Apply active listening and observe the skill in action to truly see and hear others.
  3. Create personal insights by sharing your learnings and listening to what others heard from you.
  4. Apply learnings and insights to determine future goals and focus areas.
What to expect:
  • Be ready to turn your camera on and mute off to engage in this active, dynamic session.
  • Contribute to a psych safe environment for open sharing and learning.
  • Optional: In advance, think about one thing you learned about yourself?
We can't wait to see you in the Elective!
