Listen Actively and Empathically | Beyond Intractability

Listen Actively and Empathically | Beyond Intractability | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
Empathic listening builds mutual understanding and trust.

Even when the conflict is not resolved, empathic listening can have a profound impact on the parties, improving relationships and generating mutual respect.

 

How: The former ombudsman at the University of Colorado, Tom Sebok, used to give a lecture in my conflict skills class every semester on active listening.  He said it involved three actions:

  • 1) attending to the speaker,
  • 2) paraphrasing what the speaker said and
  • 3) summarizing the key points.

Networked individuals are the new engaged citizens, and we have to connect with our professional communities, finding them where we can, often aided by social media. These awareness networks can keep us connected to the real world, through wide and diverse human relationships. We cannot rely on our ‘algorithmic overlords’ to tell us how to understand our environment. Building these networks is everyone’s responsibility.

Empathy: Key to Effective Action

Join us for a discussion on how to awaken a deep compassion to help our communities overcome divisions and foster a sense of wholeness.

Compassion means realizing our interdependence with each other and with all of life. Compassion is what links us together. It is beyond sympathy and charity. It is an awareness of the underlying unity of life.

How do we bring this compassion to a public dialogue that is increasingly polarized? How do we bridge views that may be so different from our own? How do we find common ground? These and other themes will be explored with leading spiritual thinkers.

Please! No more Icebreakers: 5 Ways to Get a Group Connected Without Icebreakers

Please! No more Icebreakers: 5 Ways to Get a Group Connected Without Icebreakers | Network Leadership | Scoop.it

"I want to affirm that getting people connected at the beginning of a meeting is essential for creating an openness and willingness to challenge. Peter Block has influenced my thinking on this issue. He always says, “Connection before Content.” If a group is going to concentrate on a difficult issue, they need to learn who others are, the skills they bring, the experience they represent, and the values they hold. Stasser, who studies group performance, notes, “Group performance increases when everyone in a group is aware of each other member’s expertise.” But unfortunately, icebreakers, like those I’ve listed above, don’t accomplish that that goal.

"Happily there are alternatives to icebreakers that effectively build connections between members of a group. I will suggest five that I use, but first I want to share my rules of thumb for designing an activity that creates connection, because the rules of thumb are much more important than the specific activity you choose."

I am not a big fan of icebreakers. The article suggests to "connect" in a group, form community, activities have to be well-thought out. What is the gathering about? What does the group want to accomplish?
Paulette Dotson's curator insight, July 18, 2:29 PM
You must remember as a younger person those awful icebreakers at camp, school etc.  There are other options to help build connections in groups.

Article originally written by James Carbary

Coaching is one of the most powerful leadership and sales tools.

It can be tempting to dismiss it as time-consuming or handholding, but both of those assumptions are mistaken. In his book, The Coaching Habit, Michael Bungay Stanier gives busy leaders advice on how to coach effectively.

In ten minutes or less, you can ask strategic and thought-provoking questions that can help drive beneficial changes in behavior, help build team cohesiveness, and get things done effectively.

Here are his seven questions to add to your coaching toolbox to make your life easier and get big results.
