One of the most powerful gifts we can give another person is to really listen to them, to listen with immersed attention, fully present and with our whole being.
This sounds simple enough, but if we’re honest with ourselves, very few of us listen like this. Research shows that people at work can only name 1-2 people from their entire lives who can really listen well.
Listening in this manner, what I call Deep Listening, is a creative force that expands us, helps us know ourselves better, and brings new ideas to the surface. It allows us to tap into our deepest essence and experience the profound relaxation that comes from having been heard. When we are not listened to, we contract and feel cut off from others.
When I listen in this way, I feel satisfied that I’m using my gift to reinforce someone at the deepest level. There is great satisfaction in helping others gain greater appreciation for themselves.
After two decades of teaching advanced listening skills to the staffs of Fortune 100 companies (at highgain.com), I’ve decided to make a life change and spend more of my time helping individuals locally.
How Can I Help You?
My local work comes in several flavors:
- offering conversation-centered elder companionship with a focus on helping elders get more out of life.
- teaching local business people the immense value of good listening and how to get everyone in your business listening for new ideas, customer feedback, and running a better business.
I look forward to helping you remain engaged with all of life, and in bringing excellent listening skills to your business.
