Thursday's are the day I take my morning off and I get the chance to sit and just hear whats going on with my kids. If i'm honest it's become the place I really practice listening. Having four kids grasping for attention, to be heard and fully affirmed without practicing this skill you can very easily miss something very important. I learn't this the hard way from a sobering experience last year. My first ever blog post on LinkedIn was reflecting on this learning. You can read it HERE.
I've since become fascinated with the skill of listening. I don't call myself an expert but I am getting better. Through being coached, coaching, parenting, being a husband, a friend and so on.
Why listening. I'm convinced now that this skill is perhaps the most important skill you can nurture. This morning I remembered a TED Talk from a guy named Julian Treasure who is now pretty famous on TED. Enjoy the video on how to listen better.
