The Art Of Listening

Listening comes in several forms.

  1. Listening for something to agree with
  2. Listening for something to argue with
  3. Listening for something we're not expecting

The third form of listening is the one most likely to reveal new perspectives, learning and discoveries. It comes from a place of curiosity rather than certainty. And it is the only kind of listening that has the power to open us to new levels of understanding and agreement.
