Look, listen, and learn from behind a lens

When you have the power to create an environment

Sima Sanghvi

Sima worried that her role behind the camera prevented her from engaging in real change. She shares how active listening can itself be an act of service.

Something to think about

  1. Sima learned a valuable lesson about active listening - hearing someone without judgement and listening without interruption. In what ways can you be an active listener in your every day life?
  2. What is the value of someone in the role of a storyteller to be able to witness people at their best moments as well as at their hardest times? What can this mean to those who allow their stories to be documented? What would it take for you to allow someone close to you in this way?
  3. Have you ever been an observer of people making a difference? How did it make you feel? What did you learn - what did you unlearn?
