Our theme for 2017
Active Listening – Call for Action
‘The biggest communication problem is we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply.’
Stephen R. Covey
We communicate continuously every day – with friends, colleagues, customers – basically with everyone around us.
We communicate during meetings.
We discuss on social media.
We consume advertisements every day.
And most important – we constantly try to express our own point of view, but lack consideration of opinions and ideas of those around us!
It is time for a different approach!
In a more and more complex world the decision to ignore someone else’s opinion or ideas can be considered as a huge obstacle to progress and innovation. No matter if someone chooses to deny the existence of global warming, ignores the various challenges we’re confronted with by artificial intelligence or believes in simple solutions offered by populist parties – start with yourself and start listening!
Instead of heading for a polarized world painting everything black and white – let’s bring some colors in.
Get your Diaries out: We are proud and pleased to announce the venue for our TEDxHeidelberg event November, 28 , 2017. With its impressive stage, beautiful interior design and accoustic we found the Kongresshaus the most appropriate location for our main event 2017 focussing on “active listening”. We’re looking forward to create a dynamic synergy determined by traditional influences and cutting-edge visionaries.
