Do you ever feel like no one understands you?
Do your loved ones and friends cut you off mid-sentence, leaving you feeling frustrated? Do you do that to others?
Active listening is not about agreeing with another person, but trying to put ourselves in their “shoes” or circumstances to fully understand the facts, and the feelings they are experiencing. When we can do that, then repeat back in our own words what we heard the person say and how they felt about it, it’s as if their heart opens up and is ready to share more. Why? Because someone finally understands them!
Active listening is the number 1 skill I use in all my coaching, consulting and metaphysical work. It gets people to the heart of the matter… fast!
