Five ways to listen better by Julian Treasure.

Some key points made in the presentation:

  • “Listening is making meaning from sound”
  • “Listening is our access to understanding”
  • “We are in danger of losing our listening”
  • “The art of conversation is being lost to personal broadcasting”
  • “We don’t want oratory we want sound bites”
  • “We have become desensitized – the media and people have to scream at us to get our attention”
  • “Why don’t we teach listening in school?”
  • “A world where we don’t listen to each other at all is a very scary place”
