When I was taking my initial coaching training courses back in 1997, one of the competencies we worked on was Active Listening: the ability to focus completely on what the client is saying and is not saying, to understand the meaning of what is said in the context of the client’s desires, and to support client self-expression. People have always told me I’m a good listener. It goes hand in hand with my introverted nature. And yet, we can always improve our strengths. Hence, this week’s Tip with ideas for improving your listening skills.
What is “adaptability” and how can you use it to your benefit?
Highly successful people tend to be excellent listeners. What can you do to be a more effective listener?
What role does your intuition play in your daily life? Do you trust it? Do you know how to tap it? What benefit might you gain if you could get better in touch with your own intuition?
Being inquisitive is inherent to long-term success.
Listening well is a gift you can give to others. It’ll cost you nothing, but it may be invaluable to them.
