Listening an essential aspect for valuable interaction
Coach Michele Stills, The Conversation Coach gives us her tip of the day: Listen to connect not to react.
Listening provide real-time feedback on how well you’re listening. Talking over others, stepping on their sentences or habitually interrupting are signals that you’re not listening.
Instead of focusing on who is right and who is in the wrong, conversational success can be achieved by connecting our intentions to our impact. This motivates us and others to listen to connect, not react.
