From one side, listening seems to be a very basic skill. We all go through our daily lives engaging in many conversations.
So what is Active listening really about?
Active listeners use verbal and non-verbal techniques to show and keep their attention on the speaker.
They listen for meaning, listen to understand the other view, and how the other person is feeling when saying it.
This skill can help you overcome disagreements and resolve problems, build and maintain relationships, improve productivity.
Actually, being a good listener is no less important than being a good speaker.
In this meetup we will explore and experiment with some active listening techniques in a safe and friendly environment.
Who can benefit from using this approach?
As agile is about collaboration, this skills will be beneficial for everyone - agile practitioners, Scrum Masters, Product owners, managers, team members...
