Listen even when you disagree. Their pause is the most critical moment your listening. The speaker is NOT the most important person in the conversation.

4 Habits that derail you from being a great listener

1. Lost Listener 2. Shrewd Listener 3. Interrupting Listener 4. Dramatic Listener

Understanding Power and the 125-400 listening rule

This is the first ingredient in the recipe of deep listening. The reason why it’s critical to pay attention and listen completely including the pauses, the silence and thoughtful moments in a discussion is because of the simple maths between speaking and hearing.

Although you can think at 400 words per minute, you can only speak at between 125-175 words per minute. (Carver, Johnson, & Friedman, 1970).

Words don’t matter when you deeply listen
