Conceived and led by Alex Straus, The Listening Project is a series of open conversations between liberals and conservatives. The participants are trained in listening tools, then have one-on-one conversations with each other where they use said tools to foster authentic and generous listening between people who are opposed politically.
Alex Straus says, "The Listening Project is a great opportunity to get deeply connected to someone who may disagree with our worldview/opinions/beliefs, and find out that we share a lot in common. The ultimate scope and aim of this project is to bridge the division taking place in our country."
Alex Straus spent the last five years working in corporate management consulting. During that time, he worked in the trenches with clients in some of the largest companies in the world. Alex partnered with his clients to achieve breakthrough business results, using similar methods to what can be seen in The Listening Project. His passion is centered around uniting his fellow citizens and creating the opportunity for people to listen to each other in a genuine and authentic manner. Alex lives with his wife in Pittsfield, MA where he enjoys hiking, paddling, climbing, and walking his 3 year old viszla named Kyoko.
