Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood
Listen Before You Talk
Seeing things through the eyes of the other person. Empathetic listening means to listen with the intent to understand what the other person is thinking and feeling. This is when we listen NOT ONLY with our ears, but we also listen with our HEARTS. We listen for feeling and for meaning.
I listen to other people's ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoints. I listen to others without interrupting. I am confident in voicing my ideas. I look people in the eyes when talking.
