Our Philosophy

No one is born listening; it is a learned behavior.  A person grows into becoming a listener. We can be taught to listen.  We can be trained to be effective listeners. The question is our willingness to become better listeners. Indeed, at Guanacaste: The Lead Listening Institute, we firmly believe that everyone is able to improve their listening skills.

The safest space in the world—indeed the most BE-YOU-tiful—is where any person, regardless of age, class, ethnicity, race, religion,

zip code, national origin, or orientation can stop, remove the mask, be real, be themselves, and most of all, be heard, be listened to,

and be understood.   

 

The largest room in the world is the room for listening improvement.

 

The gift of listening is the gift of a lifetime.
