Request to Participate in the Deep Listening Podcast
An Apple award winning podcast series to help understand how to have a bigger impact by listening more deeply
Background to the podcast
55% of your day is spent listening, yet only 2% of people have had any formal training in listening. Most listening literature is focussed on how to listen better by being completely focused on the speaker. This is useful but a more effective and impactful way exists. This podcast is about explaining how to listen better.
The 125/400 Rule explains how you can be four times more impactful in your discussions. You speak at 125 words per minute and you can listen at over 400 words per minute so what do you do with the gap. If you know about the gap, you can master the gap between them speaking and you listening therefore improving your listening capacity.
This podcast is a practical way for people to listen to other listening professionals to understand listening through multiple contrasting perspectives on the topic.
The format of the podcast is designed to take the audience through the 5 Levels of Listening and communicate tips and techniques that the audience can apply to their daily listening life.
The podcast series will be an interview format between 15 to 50 minutes.
A range of listening professionals will be interviewed including Anthropologists, Air traffic controllers, Deaf and foreign language interpreters, Hostage Negotiators Journalists, Judges, Suicide Counsellors, Mediators, Submarine Commanders, Sound Engineers, Retired Spies, Visual Scribes, Wildlife Landscape Listeners, and many others.
