About I Love to Listen Day
Listening Day was established in 2005 by Marva Shand McIntosh, who emphasized that this is not a day of silence. Instead, it is an opportunity to commit to building a culture where listening is a core value. Let’s take this chance to reflect on how we can improve our listening skills, be present with one another, and create meaningful connections in our personal and professional lives.
Hardly a day goes by that I don’t hear from someone whose life has been changed by just the awareness of listening.
A call to listen is a call to action.
Let’s celebrate Listening!
