Listening is a critical element of any kind of conversation. When we’re having a Curly Conversation, listening is particularly important because listening enables learning. And, when we’re in the unknown, learning enables us to make decisions and move forward.
As you read this post, whether you are sitting at your desk, sitting on a beach, travelling on a bus, or sitting in front of the TV, I invite you to take 30 seconds to just stop and listen to what's going on around you.
If you had a piece of paper and a pen to note down what you were listening to, what would you write? How many different things can you hear? Of those, how many had you not noticed before you stopped to listen?
Imagine what might be possible the next time you have a conversation with someone and you listen to what's being said, as well as to what's not being said.
Something to think about.
