"Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you'd have preferred to talk." --Doug Larson
I'll admit it. I'm a horrible listener. Let me clarify that....I'm horrible listener and, because I know that, I am constantly working on improving my listening skills. Most of the time I've got so much going on in my head that I am only partly in the conversation.
That's why I loved talking with this week's guest, Oscar Trimboli. He's the author of the book, Deep Listening, and we talk about how to be fully present in the conversations you're having so you can really hear what's being said. His book (and Oscar) have a really mellow vibe to them and I know you'll want to listen to it more than once (and buy the book).
Speaking of which...you can get the book HERE!
