A Note From Mark Felber

"We need others. We need others to love and we need to be loved by them. There is no doubt that without it, we too, like an infant left alone, would cease to grow, cease to develop, choose madness and even death."

Eleven seminarsThe Rewards of Really Listening

Joanna and Cyndi are sitting at a coffee shop. Joanna has just gone through a divorce and is telling her friend all about it. To a casual observer, it looks as if Cyndi is listening. But take a look at the thoughts running through Cyndi’s head: Really, people get divorced all the time; it’s time to move on. It would help her if she got a job and lost some weight; that’s what I’d do. I hope this never happens to me.

Cyndi thinks she’s a good listener. After all, she’s not interrupting or fidgeting, is she? But what Cyndi is actually doing is hearing her friend. Like so many of us, she’s just not listening.

As toddlers, we learn to speak and to hear what others are saying. As we grow up, we learn to read and write, along with other useful skills. But few of us ever learn one of the most vital skills of all -- how to really listen.

Listening Practices: Tips and Traps

Have you ever noticed how GOOD it feels to be really listened to? It's impactful, particularly when the listening goes beyond just the words you're speaking. That kind of artful listening conveys respect and value to the speaker, and promotes positive relationships of all kinds.

And, like any art, it takes practice.

According to widely referenced statistics by Dr. Albert Mehrabian, known for his pioneering work in nonverbal communication, only 7% of communication happens through a person's actual words (38% through tone and 55% through body language). That's why it's important to hone our skills to listen at deeper levels.
