Why Don't We Listen Better? Communicating & Connecting in Relationships

Good communication uses the same skills in a professional office, on a date, in a corporate board room, or at a kitchen table.
This book will help you gain these skills and improve your relationships.
Most of us think we listen well, but don’t. Not really hearing what others are trying to say can get costly. When people don’t feel heard they tend to get irritated, confused, and pull away from each other.

You will enjoy the flat-brain theory and the flat-brain tango. They show why we have trouble hearing each other, how we get into wasteful arguments, and how creative listening will help us get along better.

Six Listening Traps and 30 Listening Techniques will give you creative ways to handle both daily interactions and difficult relationships. Using the portable Talker-Listener Card will help you and others hear each other, relax, think clearer, and build empathy and cooperation. This unique approach to listening can change your life.
