If you want to find out how a person feels, or what they think, the best place to start is with a conversation. That’s only the beginning though. If you really want to figure out how they tick, you’ll need to listen and not just hear what they’re saying.
When you hear, you’re aware of sounds; when you listen, you hear those sounds and understand them. Actively listening to someone means that you’re involved in a conversation. You’re actively looking for solutions and trying to comprehend them. This kind of approach will make your conversations and coaching a lot more effective.
