Why do we all have such difficulty listening to others? For me I often distracted by my thinking about what I am going to say next. I am thinking "How can I share my ideas" rather than find out what the other person thinks.
How can I make myself more curious about what the other person thinks and learn from them as opposed to try to show how smart I am.
I am going to try some really open questions for the next week. Let me give you some examples:
- Tell me more?
- Can you explain that?
- What's you opinion on ________?
- What do you think?
I will report how well I do and see if it improves my listening. Thoughts?
