Good listeners are rare. Outstanding listeners are rarer still.

What keeps folks — maybe me and you — from listening well and deeply?

  • We might not care.
  • We’re too &$%#ed busy.
  • We think the speaker is uniformed, or worse.
  • We’re distracted by ___?___ (something, or everything).
  • We don’t value the speaker, or her/his opinion.
  • We’d rather be talking.
  • We’re TIRED!
Oh, but how much could we learn, and how much more open to us would others be, if…………
we’d just LISTEN?
