Five ways to listen better. (Treasure, 2011). (7 minutes)
Summary of the video:
5 Ways to better listening”
- Silence – 3 minutes a day.
- The Mixer – (even in noisy environment) listen to how many channels of sound you are hearing
- Savoring – enjoying mundane sounds, eg tumble driver, is a waltz. The hidden choir.
- Listening positions – you can move your listening position to different places, depending on what you want to hear. Play with them as leavers.
- RASA – Sanskrit word for juice or essence. Receive, appreciate (oh, ah), summarize (so), ask questions.
- We retain 25% of what we hear
- Making meaning from sound
- Mental process of extraction
- Pattern recognition
- “Differencing” (pink noise, discount sounds that remain the same)
- Filters take us down to what we pay attention to, they keep our reality. Intention is very important to listening.
- Sounds places in space and time. If you close your eyes, you are aware, sound always has time embedded in it.
- Sonority is time and meaning.
- We are losing our listening. We invented ways of recording, writing, sound, video. World is so noise; cacophony going on; it is tiring to listen.
- We are becoming impatient. We are becoming desensitized. It is harder for us to pay attention to the quiet, the understated.
- Listening is our access to understanding.
- A world where we don’t listen to each other at all, is a very scary place indeed.
- Every human being needs to listen consciously, in order to live fully.
- Connected in space and time, in understanding, spirituality. We need to teach listening in our schools.
Create a world of connection, understanding, and a world of peace.
If you have ever had difficulty communicating with a client, here is a perspective that might help decrease your stress level. There is a gap between perception and reality. Those gaps can be dangerous. Our only control is our perception and reaction. Embrace the absurd.
Mind the gap between perception and reality. (Tiffee, 2016).
