We live in a very strange culture in which few people are taught how to listen well, how to respond, how to speak up and be assertive without feeling guilty. We’re not taught where our responsibility ends and another person’s begins. We’re not taught “boundaries.” At most, we think the word means just having the courage to say “no,” when actually it’s more than that.

We live in a culture in which loneliness is epidemic, and yet we’re more and more afraid of trying to connect. And sometimes for good reasons.

There is a lot to complain about. But there is a way forward. The opportunities are here for us to reclaim our life as it should be. To really connect with our spouse. To have influence and be able to talk with our kids. To be able to have peace with our parents. To deal with in-laws and extended family. There are specific, simple things you can do to radically improve your life.

I invite you to contact me for coaching, or to schedule my workshops for your next group meeting, social party, or family gathering.

On the Power of Good Listening:

Dr. Robert Bolton, author, People Skills: “The defensiveness-reducing power of good listening is truly remarkable. For many people, it must be seen to be believed.”

Dr. Stephen Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People on Habit 5, good listening: “The single most important principle in the field of interpersonal relations.”
