Great post about a subject we should all be interested in. I've just bought a course on how to listen and it's a real eye opener, listening is a skill that has to be learned.

You are too great a writer man. I am in love with all your articles and wait for them to appear. But, this article of all that you have written until now is my personal favorite. I shall surely have the same article forwarded ahead and spread the information to one and all.

How To Listen? There are many people who offer you their personal experiences and you simply choose to ignore them, and in fact are so rude that you do not even respond to a discussion thread created by your very self.

You should listen to what the chemistry professor says about chemistry, not the librarian.


Hello I love your article is very good How To Listen? .. should put more information about this topic

I'm so glad I remembered you posted instructions on the monthly onesies! Especially since you can't find the Old Navy ones anymore. These are MUCH better anyway! My little guy is going to be 2 mos on the 23rd, but I think I'll fudge and do a late 1 month shot so I have the whole "collection." TFS!!!

I've had this quote burned in my mind for quite some time (although I can't remember who to attribute it to - maybe someone here can help):

Ordinary listeners only listen until they have an opinion about what they are hearing or until they validate what they already know. Great listeners listen until they learn something they did not know before.


What you're describing is the gist of Transformative Mediation, you should read about it, it totally goes with what you're talking about. Folger and Bush wrote a book about it called "The Promise of Mediation". It's the model that the USPS uses for it's conflict resolution method (called REDRESS) and drastically lowered their cases going to litigation/people feeling heard.

:) Very true! This reminds me of a man I met in the supermarket once. I was asking the same question of everyone that day about relationships and how to work through the bad ones -- in this case, a friendship -- and he just so happened to be an old marriage counselor.

He said that the cure-all for any relationship problem he's ever encountered is to go through 3 rounds with Person 1 and Person 2.

Round 1: Person 1 says a message and Person 2 repeats it to Person 1's satisfaction.

Round 2: Person 2 says a message and Person 1 repeats it to Person 2's satisfaction.

"I guarantee you, no one ever makes it to round 3 if they really care about each other."

It made such an impact on me that I still remember it, over half a year later.

Thanks for sharing this! :)

I agree with your conclusions about the importance of listening for the meaning that a person is trying to convey when they speak. Thanks for reminding us to listen for understanding, not just to hear the words. I think there may be a missing word in your last sentence - did you mean to say "wants, needs and desires and NOT just what they say in market research." ?????
