How To Build Amazing Connections
Healthy communication is what binds people together. When we engage in poor conversations we give people the opportunity to discredit, dismiss or even diminish us.
It could be because we told them too much or perhaps, not enough. If we want to communicate in a healthy way, and stay engaged in an interesting conversation, the goal must be to understand the other person, this genuine interest will maintain trust, and build a lasting and deeper connection between two people.
This goal can only be achieved, when during the interaction we are asking each other questions to which we genuinely want to know the answers. This is the only way to have a healthy and authentic conversation, and leave a lasting impression. We all want and need to feel heard and understood.
Do you want to have great relationships?
Start by having more healthy and authentic conversations. The key is to be genuine, empathetic, stay present and stay interested for the duration of your conversations. It won't work if you are putting on a show. Here "fake it till you make it" is not an option.
"Most people don’t listen to understand, they listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we listen to what’s behind the words." - Roy T. Bennett
