Learning how to listen to others…
I enjoy learning what other people are thinking, and why they are thinking that way. It provides me context to hear what they are saying! Then I condense their thoughts into a summary statement. That way I can remember and share the mindset with others when circumstances allow me to do so. I would encourage others to try this…It enhances your appreciation for Ted talks!
Thank you Dr. Gunter, what a relief ! .
