Connecting listening experts and learners around the world

Allow us to elucidate the mission behind the Global Listening Movement. Our objective is to foster collaboration among esteemed listening experts worldwide and facilitate the dissemination of practical techniques and strategies. We acknowledge the profound personal advantages that arise from effective listening, such as enhancing one's likability and evoking love, and enabling the speaker's personal growth, even in the face of trauma.

 

We also recognize the importance of listening as the first step towards finding solutions to global challenges such as societal polarization, global loneliness epidemic, climate change, geopolitical unrest, social disparities, and technological advancements that transcend borders. 

The mission of the Listening Leaders Fellowship is:

  • To recognize, gather, and build collaborative community among experts who have demonstrated leadership in the field of listening.

  • To provide a forum for these listening leaders to share the latest research and best practices in the art, science, and business of listening.

  • To create live spaces for these leaders to practice the highest levels of listening together. 


 By doing so, we hope to foster comprehensive and inclusive resolutions for our common predicaments. We believe that every voice matters, and every viewpoint is recognized, from interpersonal dialogues to global diplomacy. Join us in creating a better world through the power of listening. We hope our organization serves as a home for mutual learning, meaningful connections, fruitful collaborations, and, ultimately, positively impacting the world through the art and science of Listening. We encourage open dialogue, the exchange of ideas, and the cultivation of deep connections. 

Whether you're an expert in the field or an enthusiastic newcomer, at the GLM discover ample opportunities to expand your understanding of Listening, refine your skills, and contribute to our collective mission.
