7 Rules of Listening, Really Listening

7 Rules of Listening, Really Listening | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

[Good storytelling requires good listening.]

 

I listened while she talked, and although we both dropped a few jokes every now and then, I can see that her work situation was definitely weighing her down. The “rant” winded down after a while. She then heaved a sigh of relief and said, “What do you think?”

 

It was my turn to talk. I expressed my thoughts and told her how I think she should deal with this co-worker, nothing earth shattering, mind you, just pieces of advice she probably already figured out but only needed validation.

After that, I joked, “So you dragged me out on a rant date?” We both laughed and she said, “Sorry, I just needed somebody to listen.”

 

Thinking about this, I asked the question, what makes a good listener? What does it mean to truly listen as family or friends pour their heart out or share their problems to you?

 

Here are seven reminders I think we could all use the next time someone asks us to listen, really listen.

Save-the-day leaders weaken others but delay is dangerous.

People problems that hang-on are like dripping faucets. Delay escalates irritation. Solutions-now, however, seldom works; people need time.

Indeed, employees do leave managers, not companies.
