“When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen."~ Ernest Hemingway
Isn’t that the truth? I know I am guilty of not being present, multi-tasking and giving 50% of my attention to things sometimes. The problem with that is you lose 50% of what could be important and inspiring information!
In today’s episode, I share my own story of moving from an interrupter and “adviser” to someone who continues to work on being a mindful listener and space holder for clients, friends, and colleagues.
