Actively Listening

This is the concise definition of active listening. This is not a new ideal, it’s been around quite some time, but in this information overloaded world, it is becoming less frequently used. Active listening requires turning off TVs, cell phones, computers, tablets, etc. It means placing your focus on the one talking to HEAR what they are saying, or not saying as the case may be. Then it is our job to try to reflect and summarize back what they’ve said. “I think I hear you saying…” Then they can correct it or rephrase it as needed. God gave us two ears and one mouth to hear twice as much as we talk. I challenge you to listen more actively this week. You may just learn something new.

  1. Greetings, I believe your site could possibly be having web
    browser compatibility problems. When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in I.E., it’s
    got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted
    to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that,
    fantastic website!
