LL3: 7+ Annoying Listener Prototypes (Unscientific!)
This lesson continues the theme of creating a useful mindset for Breakthrough Listening. In the last episode, I introduced the concept of achieving breakthroughs in your professional, personal, or even political conversations by focusing more on leaving people feeling fully heard and understood. I’ll dive deeper into that soon, and if you want to get a headstart on that, use the worksheet in the Member’s Area of ListeningCampaign.com titled “Brainstorming Opportunities for Listening Breakthroughs.” OK, so with that, Listening Lesson 3 has only two sections: A quick leadership science lesson about implicit prototypes 7+ Annoying Listener Prototypes - and how you can help me expand this list

002: Introduction Part 2 | What is The Listening Campaign (and who is Kai Degner?)
My goal in this episode is to describe the rationale and structure of The Listening Campaign business and podcast. If you want to hear the backstory and learn a little more about me, you can do that back in the first episode, where I talk about the big “aha!” that lead me to this project. By the end of this episode, you should have a clear expectation about whether listening to the next episode - the real first episode! - of this podcast could be useful to you right now. I’ll orient the second part of the introduction around the following three questions: What’s The Listening Campaign? What’s The Listening Campaign Podcast and how will I keep you awake during episodes about listening? Who the heck am I and why should you listen to me talk about listening?

001: Introduction Part 1 | From OrangeBand to the Listening Campaign
A long, long time ago, back when I had hair, some college friends and I started a civil dialogue project for our campus. Our goal for The OrangeBand Initiative was to promote more engagement and civil discourse at our school, James Madison University, which had about 15,000 undergraduate students at the time (JMU is in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, a couple hours southwest of Washington, DC). We were trying to do two things: spark conversations about issues that matter, and promote respectful dialogue when people disagreed. This episode explains OrangeBand and introduces the major rationale for The Listening Campaign.
