It’s going to be a very short post this week, as I’m on break for half term. 

The Golden Rule came up in conversation, and it had me thinking about how it applies to listening. Instead of reading my writings this week, you could write a bit of your own. I have a little task for you. 

Try brainstorming at least 10 indicators that someone is listening to you with positive interest. What do you find to be the most powerful of those? Are you showing these indicators to others? 

You might be surprised to find that you forget to do these things in conversation, even if you value it when others do. If that’s the case, try using this exercise to be more self-aware in your interactions this week.

Let us know how you get on via Twitter with #ListenBetter. Follow @GlistenTraining and me @jflorentine

See you next week!
