April 9--Unfortunately, the ILA email server is temporarily down. We are working to resolve this problem. You can send email messages but they may not be answered as quickly as you expect. Any emails with the domain listen.org are affected.
"The most basic of human needs is the need to understand and be understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them."
The International Listening Association
The International Listening Association (ILA) was formed in 1979. Since then, we have grown into an international community working in more than 19 countries. We are involved in listening in education, business, healthcare, hospitality, spirituality, music and many other fields. We promote the study of listening, exchange information, and pursue research into the ways in which listening can develop understanding in our personal, political, social and working lives. The International Listening Association serves as a dialogue space, a resource network, a news source and a worldwide community.
