Have you noticed that we’re experiencing an international curiosity deficit? In our digitally connected world, genuine human communication is lacking. By learning to listen carefully and ask good questions, we can bridge the gap, build better relationships, and learn a lot along the way.
Listening is hard work. It’s not a passive activity, but an active form of engagement. Too often, we listen for what we want to hear, which can prevent us from truly understanding others. To overcome this, practice reflective listening, where you mirror back what the other person says to help them evaluate their own words. Brush up those soft skills and learn how to master the nuances of modern communication in our latest Instaread.
