We can find out all kinds of things when we pay attention and listen. We can discover things about others, things about ourselves – and perhaps even find some nuggets of wisdom. Listening carefully is one of the ways we truly connect with others.
We let people know that we care when we really listen to them. We let them know we respect them and value their opinion when we listen. We also teach them how to do the same for us.
Have some big ears and tune in to the people and things that matter to you.
