“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”.
People don’t just want to be heard; they want to be listened to with generosity. That means people want you to not only hear what they say, they want you to know where they are coming from in saying it. You need to listen to words, yes, but most importantly you need to pay attention to nuances and intimations. It gives the impression that you really care, and that you are “with it” and picking up the signals for a deeper relationship.
The word “generous” is added to listening because it is a distinction that makes a difference. One can listen with nonchalance, which is often interpreted as non-interest and inauthentic. Or one can listen with generosity, which implies sincerity and faithfulness.
What we are addressing is an aspect of effective communication – which translates to connection, processing information accurately, and impacting your relationships.
Powerful and Effective Communication can be seen in four distinct parts. And to be effective, you need to engage in all four and, to be good at all four. Accurately hearing the words that are verbalized is only the beginning. Meeting people where they really are and reading between the lines are just as important if not more.
In the next webinar we are going to give you clear explanations of the four parts of effective communication so you can have more intimate relations and get better results. In addition, we will leave you with 5 fundamental practices that will make all the difference in the world if you want to see profound changes in all your communications, transactions, and relationships.
Bring a notepad and pen and have a comfortable chair, so you can take away a treasure of unique practices that you can turn into high level interpersonal skills for heroic living. This webinar is Tuesday, April 23rd at 5:00 PM Pacific time. RSVP for yourself, and you may bring a friend. Go to: www.TheHeroesQuest.com
