As part of Daemen College’s “Campus Climate Conversations: Creating Community and Partnership” initiative, sessions designed to improve listening skills will be available for students, faculty, and staff.

The sessions on a technique called “generous listening” will be facilitated by consultant Matthew Solomon, who specializes in communication and building relationships and partnerships.

“During these sessions, participants will learn the importance of feeling heard, valued, and understood,” said Solomon. “Generous listening involves curiosity, listening for the other person’s experience, and connecting with their commitment. From this place, we connect on a level that truly makes a difference to each person and to others.”

Participants will learn the generous listening technique and how fully valuing the people around them enriches partnerships.

One-hour listening sessions will be held on campus from Nov. 17 to 21. Students, faculty, and staff are strongly encouraged to attend. A complete schedule will be shared with the campus community in the coming week. To register, please complete the form available online.
