Thursday, May 10th... Lois Carson: The Art of Effective Listening

Brandon Romano

Last Meeting Notes

Have you had a conversation with someone you cared about and walked away saying to yourself: “I might as well have been talking to the wall?” Do you understand that people may have conversations with you and walk away saying the same. If you’re honest, the answer to both questions is a resounding “yes.” Why is this? Typically we approach a conversation with a person as if they were a blank canvas upon which we can write words that they receive and understand exactly as we intend. When they don’t “get our message”, we get irritated and think they are not listening, don’t understand, are playing games or being hostile. But are we really speaking to a blank canvas? Of course not. The other person is living in his or her internal conversation. The one in their head that they refer to as “self talk.” Before you open your mouth, he is already listening, to himself. Why? “Because people are always listening to their own internal conversation. So the question is not whether we are listening when someone speaks to us. It’s a question of how we are listening. Find out more from Lois...
