1-2-3 Inner Game

I spent the past week attending a workshop on leadership with an emphasis on communication and facilitation.


One of my biggest takeaways was techniques and strategies on how to listen. 


Although I consider myself a great listener, I discovered that listening is not a singular skill but a multi-layered practice that can significantly enhance leadership effectiveness.


I've been reflecting on the difference between active listening and deep listening.


Active listening involves fully concentrating, understanding, responding, and then remembering what is being said.


However, deep listening goes beyond this—it requires an empathetic engagement, where you tune into the speaker’s emotions, unspoken words, and underlying messages.


The ability to listen on multiple levels is not just a skill but a cornerstone of effective leadership.


I'm wishing you a fantastic week ahead!
