Licity's new signature talk is available starting October 2021
Fearless Listening is our way forward. "I have been thinking a lot about listening over the course of the pandemic, and this year especially. We have been in a crisis of listening for a long time, and we need new tools to address it. People often say two things about me—that I am a good listener, and that I am fearless (they also say I am intense, funny, tell great stories, and give amazing hugs). In this new talk, I combine my passion for listening which comes from being a musician with my experience facing and healing fears, which comes from being a survivor of a chronic illness, sexual assault, and...well, lots of things. Our fear is designed to protect us, but it can also prevent us from progress and healing. When is fear appropriate and when is it problematic? It takes courage to open our ears. We are afraid. So is everyone else. Why? How can we move beyond our fears into useful and kind dialogue? My "Fearless Listening" talk delivers clear and easy ways to develop the tools to be a fearless listener, and find the courage it takes to open our ears." — Licity
