Listening for understanding

Active listening brings more clarity to communication and supports authentic relationships by creating conditions for people to feel valued and understood. This technique can improve our understanding of another’s perspective and help us to navigate conflict. Practicing active listening with a trusted friend is one way to prepare ourselves to better connect and empathize with other people in our lives.
