In this episode, Adam and Jai discuss the art of deep listening. Most people greatly underestimate the importance and power of listening deeply to others. Listening to others is not just about letting people speak. It is about letting go of our own agendas and being truly present with others.
When we deeply listen, it allows the other person to self-organize. When people feel held by another's listening, they start to get in touch with what is going on within them in unexpected and powerful ways. It is tempting to jump right into problem solving, but often if we listen deeply enough we create the space necessary for individuals to find their own solutions.
In some cases, people don't even need a solution. They simply need to tell someone their story. They need to be seen. They need to be witnessed. When we listen deeply we allow others to get these needs met.
We hope you enjoy the episode!
