We facilitate a safe listening space
Listening means paying attention not only to the story, but how it is told, the use of language and voice, and how the other person uses his or her body to tell their story to others.
Given all the listening that we do, you would think we’d be good at it! In fact, most of us are not, and research suggests that we only remember between 25 percent and 50 percent of what we hear, as described by Edgar Dale’s Cone of Experience. That means that when you talk to your boss, colleagues, customers, or spouse for 10 minutes, they pay attention to less than half of the conversation.
Turn it around and it reveals that when you are receiving directions or being presented with information, you aren’t hearing the whole message either. You hope the important parts are captured in your 25-50 percent, but what if they’re not?
Clearly, They are not statistics we are happy about so that is part of the reason we setup the Magic Minds podcast. We give you peoples stories that will inspire you to listen to the end!
