Leadership and the Art of Mindful Listening

  • Franklin University Alumni Hall (Ross Auditorium) 301 E Rich St Columbus, OH, 43215 United States (map)

Everyone wants to be heard. Some leaders pretend to listen. Good leaders listen actively and can repeat back the words they heard. But great leaders develop a reputation for being able to hear messages and meaning lurking behind the words. This kind of listening leads to greater trust, engagement, and productivity. In this interactive presentation, you’ll learn counterintuitive, mindfulness-inspired methods for listening so that the people you want to lead will feel heard. 

The Hall Leadership Lessons program presents state-of-the-art leadership knowledge delivered monthly in one hour face-to-face sessions by local and regional leaders. The program is held at Franklin University’s Ross Auditorium in Alumni Hall at the university’s downtown campus located in Columbus, Ohio.

These free sessions take place on the second Thursday of each month from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. The university has free parking adjacent to Ross Auditorium for easy access to and from the sessions.  A free continental breakfast is available for attendees. Doors open at 7:00 am.
