Why Aren’t You Listening To ME?

[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #6b2d6b;”]A[/dropcap]theme has popped with my clients this week and it is all about communication.

As human beings we find ourselves in constant relationship with others.  Many times those relationships are thriving and sometimes they are clearly not.

When you bring this dynamic into the workplace, or our homes, we find ourselves in constant tension between two ends of the spectrum. We don’t communicate well at all or we have a wonderful level of communication.  No matter where you find yourself on this spectrum a few things are important to remember.

  • We all hear things differently.
  • We all see, hear, and feel things through our own lens of perceptions.
  • We all want to be seen and heard.

So many times we try to communicate solely to get our point across. On the surface this seems reasonable but in reality this is the root cause of much misunderstanding.
