Are you listening or hearing‪?‬ BasTalk

    • Management

You are in a meeting. Yes, the same one you were in, the same time last week, yes again, the same one you were in at the same time, the week before! 

You've heard the message before, and you're pupils begin to dilate. You hear what's being said, but it's not registering in your head.

Then the manager turns towards you and asks a different question! You are jolted. The mind is blank. 

Are you not listening? Asks the frowning manager. The people around the table are staring at you.

And your mouth is dry as you struggle to utter some sensible response.

Does it sound familiar?



Tune in to this fascinating topic of hearing versus listening. I share three tips to break out of hearing people and get into a proper listening mode!
