25 Sharpening Your Skills LISTENING Are You Listening? Question: What is the opposite of speaking? Many would say listening is the opposite of speaking. Yet, too often in conversations, the reality is that rather than listening, the “listener” is merely waiting to talk!
26 COMMITTED LISTENING Effective coaching happens in conversations when the teacher (or team member) “walks away feeling inspired, empowered, and enabled to act.” - Hargrove, 2003 The first step in these conversations is committed listening.
27 Are You Listening? Practice really listening with a partner: Have a partner talk for 3 minutes sharing a challenging or negative experience from a coaching session. Provide no verbal response during the three minutes. Just listen and the debrief. Now trade roles. ACTIVITY
28 Closing Comments… Recognize that… Sometimes we are not committed listeners This has a direct impact on our coaching effectiveness Oregon

31 Successful communication depends on “one all-too-elusive ability: to really listen.“ This requires that within conflict situations we quiet our mind’s conversation and stop planning our next response and defending ourselves against criticism. We simply need to be still, on every level – and just listen! -Glaser & Glaser 2006
