Greater St. Louis Chapter


Welcome to the Greater St. Louis Chapter of Our Community LISTENS, affectionately named “The Gateway to Listening” by those that have experienced the impact of our message in their lives.

By leading transformational learning experiences in Illinois, Missouri, and Iowa, the Gateway to Listening is igniting change, equipping individuals, strengthening business and transforming communities.  We are collaborating with varies agencies to include nonprofit, government, education and faith based leaders to share our message, grow connections in our community, and expand our reach.  We see ourselves building bridges between hurting and healing, teaching and learning, talking and listening and managing and leading.

Deepen your connections with others through purposeful and intentional Communication Skills Training.  This three-day class combines classroom instruction, experiential activity and group discussion.  During class you will explore your communication style, the communication cycle and how it forms the foundation of all interpersonal communication.  You will also learn how the skill of LISTENING can be the most helpful thing a person can do for another.  Finally, you will recognize a more effective way to confront another person when asking for change.

We hope to see you in class!
