What is the International Listening Association (ILA)?

The International Listening Association (ILA) was formed in 1979 and is committed to advancing the practice, teaching and research of Listening throughout the world. We are an international community working in more than 25 countries involved in Listening in education, business, healthcare, hospitality, spirituality, music and many other fields. The ILA is a dialogue space, a resource network, a news source, and a worldwide community finding ways in which Listening can develop understanding in our personal, political, social, and working lives.
