Bill Ury has a lot in common with Barry-Wehmiller. We think listening can change the world.

“We think of communication as talking, but actually, it’s just as much, if not more, about listening,” Bill says on this episode of the Everybody Matters podcast. “Listening turns out to be the key skill we all need to learn.”

Bill Ury is the co-founder of Harvard’s Program on Negotiation and is one of the world’s leading experts on negotiation and mediation. Trained as a social anthropologist, Bill has carried out his research on negotiation not only in the boardroom and at the bargaining table, but also among the Bushmen of the Kalahari and the clan warriors of New Guinea.

On this episode of our podcast, Bill shares his unique perspective on how empathetic listening can make a difference. Not just across a negotiation table between world powers, but in our day to day interactions with people. The episode also features a conversation between Bill and BW CEO, Bob Chapman.
