We are delighted to welcome Will Young to No.6 for the first time. Over the last 15 years, Will Young has sold multi-platinum albums, sold out tours across the country and acted on the large and small screen. But at No.6, he will be taking time out to talking about the Art of Listening, something he is very passionate about.
Do we focus enough on truly listening to people? It is something that needs to be worked on. Too often we are waiting to impose what we want to say, or what we think, whereas to actually sit and truly hear someone is a wonderful way to connect with people. To be properly heard, is to be validated, and to be validated is to be shown acceptance. In this talk and Q&A, I will discuss the importance of being heard and why it doesn’t happen, and how we can look at co-dependence and boundaries to create better friendships, relationships, working lives and ultimately look after ourselves.
