📣 CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?
Listening is a fine art and one of the most important skills that any person can develop.
When listening with the intent to understand, here’s what it looks like:
👂🏽Try not to listen to respond (this is extremely difficult).
👂🏽Don’t assume you know more about a situation than the person speaking.
👂🏽Be empathetic with people. They are human beings with feelings.
👂🏽Be aware of bias & perceptions that can override listening.
This is a basic foundation for opening up dialogue for tough conversations.
