donhornsby's curator insight, June 24, 8:53 AM

(From the article): Noticing speakers’ non-verbal behaviours is part of improving your listening skills. In addition to that you’re not just listening for the words that somebody tells you but also the tone. Sometimes you recognise a misalignment between somebody’s words and the eyes. 


Similarly, if the words and tone of voice do not align and the speaker’s body language doesn't either, you not only detect dissonance and misalignment but can also tell a lot about the person or their current attitude and circumstances. You’ll be in a better position to be empathetic and also to show that you’re trying to understand them more deeply.
