Podcast #7 – Listen to understand, not respond
Steven Covey famously said: “Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”
I struggle with this big time, but have found a few steps that I can take to improve what I hear.
Step #1 – Enter the conversation with a clear mind
#2 Really listen – listen to everything they say before you respond or craft your response, you need to really hear the problem before replying.
#3 Keep Eye Contact it takes your mind off of answering
#4 Take notes
#5 Use the 3 second rule never respond until 3 seconds goes by
