During one of our recent coach training classes, we talked about the importance of listening. The statement was made that “All coaching begins with listening.” A participant commented “That’s also true for ministry, teaching, parenting – actually, all of life. It ALL begins with listening!”
What a great insight!
In coaching, we aim for an 80/20 ratio of listening-to-talking. That ratio seems to be ideal for bringing out the best in others.
Let’s aim for that same ratio this week – 80% Listening and 20% Talking.
Notice the difference in your leadership, teaching, parenting, etc….
Remember, it ALL begins with listening!
All the best to you,
