Practices for Better Listening

Today we’re talking about being a good listener… discussing how to kick your listening skills up a notch, & why you should care about listening in the first place.

Everyone loves a good listener, even though they can be hard to come by – so fine-tuning this skill comes with so many advantages.

Many of the issues we face in our lives could be solved or avoided altogether with better communication – and a really huge, essential part of good communication is good listening. Without good listening, we can wind up taking actions based on misunderstandings. Then we get all twisted up in communication confusion when it’s not working like we thought it would, sometimes leading us to start all over again. (That is IF we have the opportunity to try again).

I find it’s really much better to LISTEN well the first time around!

This week’s video offers several practices you can use to become a more effective listener. Pick the most resonant one to focus on this week, & please let us know how it goes in the comments! Thanks for watching.
