What happens when you listen more

I am paying glowing tribute to my coaches who taught me the art of listening and impressed it on me to practice it daily. Their effort on me is paying off in this present moment

So, I had 3 different sessions with clients on Saturday, February 19, 2022. One of the sessions; precisely the last, altered the term of engagement and the schedule of the module


Starting the session in a lighter mood on the day I asked my client about how her week went and the gist kicked in………this went on for about 8 minutes

In between I was able to filter and focus on the message; a tool that later helped me notice a significant emotional moment that would have gone unnoticed before now.

Though my client was not aware of the import of that moment as to how it will affect her receptiveness and responsiveness to her session on that day.

After she was done, what I did was abandon the module for the day and dwelt on the activity that produced a significant emotional moment for her in the week. New content was created for the day

She thanked me after the session and felt relieved of the needless emotional baggage she’d have carried to the new week.

Listening is the most important communication skill. It takes practice to master it. Yet it is an active process that requires attention.

I thank all my coaches who even have had to chastise me for not paying attention to details.
Thank you 🙏😀
