Bev Lutz ICF membership provides incredible professional networking opportunities, professional and personal growth, and opportunities to explore my strengths as I volunteer in service of my profession.  My chapter really helps me stay current with coaching, thought leadership, and learn-n-earn (CEU’s) from professional development events.  But it’s the supportive coach-friends and collaborators who have made membership for me priceless. //

Undoubtedly, Asking Questions and Active Listening are two of core competencies of effective coaching. However, “active” listening is only part of the answer. Many don’t realize that Listening is primarily a cognitive activity, but it is perceived behaviorally. How much do you

understand how meaning is made? Some of the latest listening research (Bodie et al., 2020) has identified the 4 habits of listening. If listening is a habit, then we have more control over how we do it in our brain. Listening is important, yet only about 2% of the population has ever had listening training. Much of the listening training focuses on the nonverbals of listening, sometimes referred to as Active Listening, but neglects to cover the cognitive aspect, where meaning is made. Join Laura Janusik, who has devoted over 20 years of her life researching, teaching, and training listening. Let her help you look at listening in a new way what will increase your coaching effectiveness!


  • Participants will understand that listening is a habit over which individuals have control

  • Participants will identify their own dominant listening habits and listening blind spots

  • Participants will practice listening from their blind spots

  • Participants will practice two verbal listening solutions to create shared meaning
