Active listening

Do you ever find yourself speaking up too soon? 

  • If so how can you clear your mind to fully listen?
  1. I should try to focus on what the person is saying then respond accordingly 
  • Do you ever find yourself wanting to jump in because you are eager to share?
  1. Yes I do
  • How can you channel your excitement into listening and wait for the proper opportunity to share?
  1. By being for patient 
  • What else can you do to prepare for conversations with others? 
  1. Ask them on what they like and dislikes
  • Can we ask them upfront what they are looking for? (advice, a sounding board, solutions) 
  1. Under some circumstances yes, but some times we on sensitive topics we can't
  • How does it make you feel to be cut off in the middle of your thought?
  1. It makes me feel mad
