What is active listening?
Active listening is a technical term for really listening. In a world that over-values talking and positioning, the ability to pay attention without judgment, a fix-it attitude, or impatience is rare.
Yet, this ability is crucial for everything from professional success to emotional intimacy, fulfilling relationships, and a sense of belonging.
It is possible to have heartfelt conversations and true conflict resolution – as long as there is a shared commitment to listening better.
