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:
- Listening to the words of these passionate individuals—so that the proceedings may be transcribed accurately,
- Listening to the spirit behind their words—especially the courage of these individuals to go against the grain of society, and
- Listening for opportunities—opportunities to compare the narratives of these individuals with the broader narratives of human and social development.
