Practice Active Listening

November 16, 2020

In the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Professional Development workshop, Coming Together for Racial Understanding, we learn about and practice active listening. Active listening refers to a pattern of listening that keeps you engaged with your conversation partner in a positive way. It is the process of listening attentively while someone else speaks, paraphrasing and reflecting back what is said, withholding judgment and advice. Active listening serves the purpose of earning the trust of others and helping you to understand their situations.
