  • Reflection Question
    Education & Livelihood Engage In Active Listening
    What was it like to actively listen to someone? How did both people and the conversation benefit from active listening?

    I find myself so much more engaged in a conversation when I put aside my other thoughts in order to be able to actively listen and engage in the conversation.
  • Reflection Question
