Did you hear what I think I said? Most of us think of ourselves as better listeners than we really are. In fact, listening may be one of our least-developed skills. As Dr. Brian Grossman has discovered through his research, teaching and private practice, the important human skill of listening and being listened to:
- Strengthens relationships by cementing our connection with one another
- Fortifies our own sense of well being
- Makes the difference between feeling accepted or feeling isolated
