In today's fast-paced world, it's tough to focus our attention in any one direction for any amount of time, even when it's on a conversation with someone extremely important to us, like a coworker or a loved one. It's even harder when maybe we don't like what we're hearing.
This week we're thinking about feedback. We know that it presents opportunities and helps us grow, yet most of us have a knee-jerk reaction that undermines what we're hearing and adjusts for our own bias. But what if we got better at listening? What if we approached every conversation with our full interest, without bringing in our own narratives, or preparing our answers ahead of time? There is so much we could learn, about our ourselves and the world!
