ILA International Day of Listening

Get ready for the 5th ILA International Day of Listening


Empathy is not sympathy, nor is it feeling sorry for someone, or trying to make it better for the person.  It is simply understanding what someone else is feeling.

If ever there was a time to “listen with empathy,” it is now. 

Learn how to be a more empathic listener. 

Join us for a six-session series.  Click on the Schedule of Events for more information and to register.
