Mindful Listening

The key behind communication — it's not about what you say. It's how you shut up.
Empathy and listening — they sound easy, but you know that most people you meet on a daily basis can't do it. So what's the deal?
Mindful listening is the skill behind deep relationships.
This book is about a skill that isn't complex, but also not easy. It's a book about relationships and what drives them — what lets you into people's hearts. Making someone feel seen and heard and important is the highway to anyone's heart. So it's time to take a look at yourself, diagnose your issues with connection and listening, and attack new and old friendships with a more empathetic perspective.
Increase your emotional intelligence and people analyzing skills.
