What are you thinking about when you’re having a conversation? Are you fully present? Or is there a voice in your head?
At Speaking Connections in August (click here to find out about our regular speaking clubs) we looked at listening skills and explored what goes on in our heads when we’re having a conversation. I think everyone was a bit surprised to find out that other people were having the same sorts of thoughts (we do tend to think we’re the only ones don’t we?). We all agreed that we were actually listening only about 50% to the person speaking, and 50% to our own internal dialogue. I’ve created this video to share some of the things that came up in our discussions.
