Awakening the Spirit of Creative Collaboration

Inner Listening for Professional Listeners

for facilitative leaders, mediators, coaches, and consultants

The quality of presence that we bring to our professional work, makes a significant difference with regard to outcomes. This means that to do our best work, to be there for others as deeply and powerfully as we'd like, we also need to be there for our own selves -- as the places inside us that still need to be seen and heard and held, are usually the limiting factor in our ability to be fully present with others. 

I will always remember a gentleman who attended one of my "Heart-Centered Listening" workshops. When we came back to the full circle after having engaged in a deep listening activity in triads, he reported back with a note of surprise:

"I came here to learn how to be a better listener to others, since that's what I do as part of my Community Relations work in municipal government. Yet today I discovered that to be a better listener myself, I need some listening, too!"

Those of us whose work involves supporting others also need to receive support in the inner work of facilitating our own "internal meeting". My role when serving as an Inner Relationship coach, is to support you in this inner listening process, of witnessing and befriending the various layers or parts that we all have within us.

It is an honor to work with you, as I know that your work in turn influences many others. Please contact me if you are interested in a pro-bono session to explore together, whether this work may be a fit. 

Rosa's practice of Inner Relationship coaching is informed and inspired by Schwartz' Internal Family Systems model, Cornell and McGavin's Inner Relationship Focusing, and Donaghue's Inner Empathy work, among others. However, the "secret sauce" that ties the various ingredients together, is all her own! :-)
