Why Aren’t They Listening?

People often wonder why their co-workers, boss, or family members don’t appear to be listening when they speak. Julian Treasure explains in his 2013 Ted Talk, the  “7 Deadly Sins” to avoid when you want people to hear and respect what you are saying.

Avoid: Gossiping, Judging, Negativity, Complaining, Excuses, Exaggeration and Dogmatism.

He also provides “Four Powerful Foundations” that you need to embrace when you speak.

HAIL: Honesty, Authenticity, Integrity and Love (wishing well to others)

Great insight from Julian. Try out some of the tools he provides to help you increase the power of how you speak and what you say. Feel free to let us know what you think.
