So it’s Monday and it’s a new week, I just wanted to touch base with our listening skills.
It’s become so apparent to me through having conversations with people that we rarely listen to understand, we listen to reply.
So whilst someone is telling their story or giving instruction we rarely take the time to just listen, In fact more chances we are thinking of what to say back before they have even finished.
TASK!: This week I want you to try to slow down when somebody is speaking to you and actually listen to what they are saying, think about it and pause before you even reply.
It’s made such a difference to my conversations and I have found that I interrupted people too much. But here we go! It’s a new week, a new canvas to make whatever picture we like!
