“Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you’d have preferred to talk” – Doug Larsen
When we hear the phrase “communication skills”, we’re often thinking about the ability to express themselves. To that, maybe we should call that exactly that – “expression skills”.
Although expression skills is part of communication, it’s one half at best. Great communicators are far better listeners, than speakers.
“Empathy” is the focus in great communication. Understanding where the other is coming from by placing ourselves in their shoes, genuinely. Free of judgement, and fully present to connect.
The paradigm shift is this: instead of eagerly awaiting your turn to speak, eagerly await your turn to listen.
