Learn the skill of listening – truly listening – to your partner, friends and family so they feel you’re there for them and they are heard and supported. A taster talk with Mandy Preece, founder of Being Rock
Have you ever wanted to know how to respond to your children when they are sad, angry or frustrated? Or how to really listen to your partner, friends and family when they need your support? Welcome to Being Rock!
Being Rock is a new way of looking at how to enable people to feel heard and supported. And the good news is we can all do it! Come and explore what it means to truly listen:
- The importance of presence and silence
- Observing body language and how people talk
- A fresh look at listening skills and the some essentials to support people to unburden
- How to use empathy effectively
- What hinders our ability to support someone
