Forms of Listening
I was involved as a co-facilitator in a process that may be described as a multi-expert conversation among social entrepreneurs, organised @sdrcindia on 24 Feb 2018. As a co-facilitator, I thought three types of listening happened here:
(1) Listening to the words of these passionate individuals—so that the proceedings may be transcribed accurately,
(2) Listening to the spirit behind their words—especially the courage of these individuals to go against the grain of society, and
(3) Listening for opportunities—opportunities to compare the narratives of these individuals with the broader narratives of human and social development.
