A Leader’s Guide to Listening

Effective Listening is Not About You: It’s About Them

Effective Listening is not hearing every word said.

Effective Listening is about ensuring that the person talking to you feels heard.

Effective Listening Takes Effort

Effective Listening requires giving our full attention.

Giving our full attention is not always easy and takes practice.

If you get this right you may avoid pain for yourself and others. You may be able to save a relationship.

Follow these three essential steps to making others feel heard:


  1. Stop what you’re doing
  2. Open your ears
  3. Show you understand
