Two-day training course to teach techniques to improve listening, communication effectiveness
A Hawaiʻi nonprofit is offering the opportunity for 30 people to learn techniques to help increase the Big Island’s capacity to respond to community members experiencing burnout, stress and anxiety with empathy and aloha.
Vibrant Hawaiʻi has a two-day Noho Paipai instructor training course planned for 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 27 and 28 at the Haihai Fire Station, located at 401 Haihai St. in Hilo. The training course will be hosted by John Pellitteri and provide those who participate with training, coaching and feedback to deliver certification coursework to improve listening and communication effectiveness.
The Noho Paipai instructor training is a valuable asset for community and faith leaders, community health workers and social service navigators, human resources personnel, supervisors and managers, anyone who supports youth and any other interested Big Island residents.
Upon successful completion of the course, instructors will be able to describe and demonstrate active and reflective listening techniques, explain positive and negative feedback loops and demonstrate reflective listening in emotionally charged situations. The course includes six hours of direct instruction on active listening and three hours of instruction on presenting the material in a group format.
