The Art of Effective Listening

On Saturday afternoon, May 29, 2021, we had a get-together with the theme "I'm All Ears, The Art of Effective Listening". The event, which ran for over an hour, was given by Ms. Jing Gomez, a Filipina who is an expert in Communication. Briefly, she explained that listening is not easy because you have to process what is being said and it is boring if you listen for too long. In addition, she also gave some questions about what we would do when given a certain situation. Then, she explained that everything must be heard first before we can give a good reaction and input. Finally,  she asked what the participants got from the talk. Broadly speaking, everyone knows that listening is not easy, but to give certain input and reactions, we must listen attentively to the stories.
