PeoplesHub Workshop – Connect online as an individual

Deep Listening through Open & Honest Questions

Imagine being listened to without an agenda and knowing that the other person is not trying to fix you, save you, or advise you. It is possible! This workshop is an opportunity to acquire this skill or grow it through the process of learning and practicing honest and open questions.
