Welcome to the
International Listening Association
"The most basic of human needs is the need to understand and be understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them." Ralph Nichols
The International Listening Association (ILA) is a network of people committed to the development of effective listening in professional and personal life. We are involved in listening in education, business, healthcare, hospitality, music and many other fields. We promote the study of listening, exchange information and pursue research into the ways in which listening can develop understanding in our personal, political, social and working lives. The International Listening Association serves as a dialogue space, a resource network, a news source and an international community - our members are working in more than 19 countries across the globe.
