The Power of Listening
Listen and respond in a way that improves mutual understanding

When thinking about communication, it is easy to prioritize talking above listening. However, when you intentionally listen deeply to someone, you increase the likelihood of arriving at mutual understanding.  This workshop provides an opportunity for you to learn and apply active listening skills.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize why another person’s perspective of a situation might differ from your own
  • Apply active listening techniques

This workshop is open to and free for all UCD students - click the link to sign in and participate!  The workshop also serves as one of the required prerequisite workshops for the Student Leadership Development Program (SLDP).

Policies and Best Practices

Out of respect to our facilitators and other participants, our policy is that students must arrive on time and stay for the full workshop.

To get the most out of your time with us we encourage you to:

  • Participate with a laptop or tablet
  • Prepare to interact using your microphone, webcam, and chat
  • Be ready to access external websites and documents

We also understand this may not be possible and encourage you to join us anyway, using whatever you've got! 
The CLL strives to make our workshops and programs accessible to the undergraduate community. If you need accommodations, please email us at cll@ucdavis.edu.
