Video: The Power of Listening

William Ury’s presents an alternate perspective on the importance of listening in communication during his January, 2015 San Diego TEDx San Diego talk. C4H used this video in the active listening section of a training on collaboration in March 2016.

Video description from the YouTube notes:

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. William Ury explains how listening is the essential, and often overlooked, half of communication. His stories of candid conversations with presidents and business leaders provide us with impactful lessons, such as understanding the power of a human mind opening up. He asks us to join a listening revolution, and promises that if we all just listen a little bit more, we can transform any relationship.

William Ury, cofounder of Harvard’s Program on Negotiation, is one of the world’s best-known and most influential experts on negotiation. He is the coauthor of Getting to Yes.
