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.

Communication Skills Training is a three-day class that combines classroom instruction, experiential activity and group discussion.  The capstone of the course is focused on counter-intuitive but extremely effective skills, including reflective listening and effective confrontation using empathy.  Through this deeply personal exploration of how you listen, relate, discern and communicate, you will discover more about yourself and how you interact with others; ultimately improving your personal and professional relationships.

We hope to see you in class!
