Listening With Awareness

You aren’t really listening if you’re busy predicting what someone is going to say next.

When people repeat phrases or words, they’re often revealing their primary focus, which is on obtaining valuable information.

When people express intense emotions, avoid the impulse to react emotionally too. Instead, ask neutral questions like what makes the issue so important to them.

Spark your curiosity instead of falling on the emotional roller coaster.
