Reflect on the following three principles of listening:
- Listen positively and empathically – be in contact with your conversation partner with open mind and open heart. Step into their shoes.
- Listen from the future. Feel what the best future would be for your dialog partner. How could they flourish?
- Power of silence and presence. Remain completely silent and present in a conversation. Don’t interrupt moments of silence. Let them be. They can be sources of insight and creativity. We often miss them.
