How many times a week do you have a conversation that just stays at the surface? With your colleagues? With your family? With your friends?
It happens often. Even when we are in conversation, we can breeze past each other altogether.
The thing is: We are craving depth each day. We are craving real. We want people to care.
Joseph Pine said, "The experience of being understood, versus interpreted, is so compelling you can charge admission.”
This week's tip is to seek to understand and go deeper in your conversations.
Where do you tend to have the most superficial conversations? Focus there. Ask more questions.
Really listen. That's where the understanding happens.
