This workshop uses the experience of all the participants to meet the objectives detailed above. It draws on participants’ experience of listening and questioning, encourages participants to reflect on this experience and then extracts principles of good listening in order to identify the key skills involved. Participants will then have an opportunity to practise those skills and to consider how they might utilise the learning in the workplace.
