Does this sound a bit different – even a little challenging? If it does it’s probably because we are so rarely encouraged to think about how well we listen. There’s listening to reply and interrupt – and then there’s listening that actively ignites new thinking. You could call it ‘listening to inspire’.
‘The quality of everything we do depends on the quality of the thinking that we do first – and the quality of that thinking depends on how we are being treated while we think.’ (Nancy Kline) It’s almost an equation. Improving the quality of listening improves everything else.
It’s as simple, and as complex, as that.
In order to think well we need to actively create the conditions that help us to do so. How many organisations choose to do that? Sadly few. Yet those who do so are astonished by the difference that it makes. They notice, as you will, that slowing down speeds things up.
The principles and practice of this deeply human, creative yet rigorous way of being adapt brilliantly online, and will transform the interactions, decisions and results of teams and groups wherever they are. For more information check out the Courses listed below or contact Ruth directly.
