2 simple ways to drastically improve ALL your interactions/conversations/relationships
Discover how to transform your conversations and save time (by becoming an effective listener).
As you probably know, over 90% of people are poor listeners.
And I used to be one of them!
By training as a coach I realised that often I wasn’t actively listening before. I was really just waiting for my chance to speak, so I didn’t always shut up and listen properly. I interrupted. I finished people’s sentences for them. Or I’d be thinking of other things – or perhaps doing other things – instead of actually stopping and giving them my full undivided attention.
By doing the two things that I’m going to teach you now, you’ll improve your listening skills immediately. It’ll also save you time and you’ll be able to help others feel far more confident, valued and understood.
So what exactly do you need to do?
Number 1 – In every conversation you have today, whether it’s face to face on the phone or a video call, just stop what you’re doing and give the other person your full undivided attention. And when you do that, you’ll be amazed at how much time it actually saves you.
And then number 2 – you need to shut up and make sure that you don’t interrupt them. You don’t finish their sentences, and you don’t chip in with your own story.
These two techniques are so simple, yet so powerful. So give them a go and you’ll notice the difference they make.
