Listening in both the in-person realm and the virtual space can feel like a bit of a lost art form sometimes. Here are a few things to consider as you think about listening:
- What are you doing to signal that you are listening?
- What are you listening for? Are you listening to really hear what the other person is saying or are you listening to figure out how to phrase your reply?
- What are you noticing about the energy of the conversation? Are you listening for how fast they are talking? The words they are using? What’s really important to them?
- What is not being said in the context of this conversation?
- What are the elements which are not being talked about?
- What do you notice about the tone and energy of the conversation?
As a team, it may be interesting to share what you each notice about listening. My guess is that everyone will be listening in different ways.
What’s important to note as a team around this?
And so, this wraps up our June posts. This month I brought in the new Tuesday series around going Back to the Basics. This joins the Thursday Team Building Questions and Friday’s Flashback Friday series. This month continued a focus on teamwork, a core focus of my business. I hope you got tips for both your remote and in-person teams, especially for those that are returning back to face-to-face work.
