25 Sep 2013 Listening Challenge
On January 4, I recommended making one small change per month this year to become one of the best listeners in your organization and reap the rewards of better collaboration, higher trust, and improved teamwork. I want to thank everyone who’s reached out to tell me you’re doing the challenge and seeing the benefits. You rock!
If you’ve been participating, then pat yourself on the back. If not, please join us now. It’s never too late. Just jump in and enjoy the adventure.
Your listening challenge for September, if you are willing to accept it, is quite a lot of fun:
“Repeat the last word or main point as a question. If the other person says, ‘The gross margin demands are unreasonable’ then say, ‘Unreasonable?’ and nothing more. It’s an easy technique to practice, and a simple way to invite the other person to share both subjective and objective data.”
