Our Story

The Residents’ Council was established to support the residents of Bethany Village. We who are the elected representatives follow a simple set of principles:

  • To effectively represent others, we need more than our perspective. We need insights from those we represent.
  • Listening is not simply hearing what others are saying; it’s giving them space to contribute.
  • Effective listening is about ensuring people feel understood because what they share.
  • To be a good listener, leaders need to be curious about others and not simply focused on themselves.
  • Being a good listener involves shifting our focus from trying to be interesting to being interested.
