Counseling On Demand

Jan 31, 2018

There are a lot of different schools of thought on communication.  Fred Riley has broken the listening part of communication into three key areas.  The first is acknowledging.  How do you let people know that you're really listening to what they're saying.

When people are talking, they're coming from one of three places

1. Thinking

2. Feeling

3. Doing

Ask them "so what you're saying is..." or "so what you're thinking is..."

When someone is feeling, you'll hear a lot of emotion.  Lots of feeling words.  Sometimes even swearing.  There will be a lot of strength in the words.

If they're in a "doing" mood, you'll hear a lot of action words.  Say "so what you need me to do is...". That signals that you're listening.
