Thought-full Thursday: Unfolding


“Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force.
The people who listen to us are the ones we move toward.
When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.”

Karl Menninger

Listening helps you and the people you listen to learn and develop. Listen; really listen to someone today.

  • Ask them at the end, “What are you taking away from this conversation?” (Be prepared to be surprised).

Reflect on the experience of listening you had: 

  • What did you learn about the person you listened to? About yourself? 
  • How will you use what you learned?
