We're excited to invite you to a training event planned for the Spring: Active Listening skills, to be held on Saturday 29th February 2020, 9.30am – 12.30pm, hosted at St Peters Church, Hextable BR8 7RH.
Would you like to improve your listening skills? Have you listened to others for many years and need to refresh your skills? Would you like to learn how to actively listen to others? Then this event is for you!! Everybody should have somebody they can talk to in a safe space and feel they have been listened to, without judgement and with understanding. The aim of the morning is to equip you to better actively listen, by giving you simple tools that will help you to encourage others to share their life experiences, difficulties, challenges and thoughts with you.
Aims of this time:
To understand the value of active listening skills
To practice active listening skills
To explore how we communicate verbally and non-verbally
To discover how our reactions and responses make a difference
To consider how we manage distractions
To consider confidentiality, touch, comforting and safeguarding
To learn how to access further support
This course would be particularly ideal if you're involved in our Welcome, Hospitality or Pastoral Care Teams, as a Life Group Leader or involved in Prayer Ministry. However, it’s for everyone with an interest in further developing their listening skills.
