Next Monday in the Netherlands a listening marathon will start for a week at the broadcaster ‘Human’ on the radio. People will listen to stories from known and unknown Dutch people for a week. Who are they, how do they think, what do they feel? On Tuesday I will be standing for an hour with a sign “Free Listening” in Breda in the company of two reporters from the radio. I will listen and in the meantime talk about the importance of listening in our society.
We also have three pages in a Dutch magazine about listening (I would love to send it to you but none of you read Dutch:-)), and I presented to 30 CEO’s of our country our initiativeNederland Luistert. As a theme for 2019, we chose: Listening Leadership.
Last week Nederland-Luistert became a partner ofLiving Room Conversations. We are so happy to be connected with them. Don’t forget theNational Conversation week in April!!
