Deep Listening

Masterclass with Holger Nauheimer, Stephan and Sander Ummelen

Amsterdam, February 28-March 1, 2019

at Treehouse Tribe, Amsterdam


This is not just another conversation class. It is the masterclass for conversation artists. Listening is the key for building relationships, for leading self, others, businesses and the world. Good listeners can prevent disasters or develop breakthrough innovations. A world full good listeners would be a better world. We know intuitively that we can open the hearts of other people when we listen empathetically. And yet, we practice this skill only on the first date with a new mate.

Join Holger, Stephan and Sander to go deeper than in any other listening workshop you have attended so far. You will:

  • become aware of your own listening patterns
  • learn strategies to calm down inner voices and focus on the conversation partner
  • explore different listening and questioning techniques for coaching and for leadership
  • experience how good listening can become the seed of a great conversation
  • experiment with different questioning types to explore purpose



Day 1

  • How to observe yourself listening and how to deepen awareness on your own listening patterns: what goes on in your mind? (several practices)
  • The myth of multi-tasking (theory and practice)
  • Inner speech and inner voices (theory and practice)
  • Conversation theories and types of (bad) listeners
  • Connecting deeply with self and with your conversation partner; finding the C.O.A.C.H. state (practice)
  • Purpose as the anchor for effective conversations


Day 2

  • 12 questions that facilitate deep exploration on purpose, concerns and circumstances (practice)
  • Group dialogue; four rooms of change (theory and practice)
  • Transfer

Holger Nauheimer is the founder and developer of the Change Days movement. He has hosted the Berlin Change Days for 10 years and helped to giving birth to the Toronto Change Days. 

For 30 years, Holger has inspired the world of change management and organizational development. With hundreds of articles in the Internet, countless training programmes for leaders around the world and 10 years of hosting the Berlin Change Days, he has had an impact on many change practitioners. Likewise, in his work with large multi-national companies and global NGOs, he has supported the development of leadership and collaboration skills. 

Holger’s philosophy and approach rests on strong shoulders: he studied with the masters. In particular, he takes his inspirations from Stephen Gilligan (Hypnotherapy and Trance), Robert Dilts (Generative Systems Work), Max Schupbach (Deep Democracy), Peggy Holman (Complexity), Juanita Brown, Marvin Weisbord and Sandra Janoff (Facilitation), David Cooperider (Positive Psychology), Harrison Owen (Open Space Technology) and many others. Based on these sources, he has developed a conversation model with which people can craft healthy and constructive work relationships.


Stephan & Sander led a Dutch branding agency for ten years until they sold their shares to focus on values in organizations. Waardengedreven (Values Driven) helps companies change based on their own philosophy on life, society and work. Together with a mathematician and a professor, they have also developed a way to statistically analyse the authenticity of beliefs at large companies. Clients include banks, international transportation giants and yes - even the Catholic Church.
