This is a tool from the Presencing Institute.
Listening from all leadership capacities is most underrated. It’s at the source of all great leadership. Often, at the source of leadership failure is a lack of listening. So, it’s an important skill for leadership and all means of professional mastery, as well as our personal lives.
In this tool, you’ll find a video in which Otto Scharmer explains which levels of listening there are and how we can practice these different listening skills.
You can then access the ‘assessment’ section by creating an account and connecting to one of the PI communities. In this ‘assessment’ section, you will then find a practical exercise to practice and reflect on your quality of listening each day. It helps you recognise the different levels of listening and reflect on those moments when you shifted from one level to the other.
I absolutely love this exercise, as it reminds me of the different levels of listening that you have. Its also an easy exercise that you can do with four people and practice daily after that.
