"I have been trying to be more conscientious during meetings."
"It was interesting to me to realize how many distractions we have without noticing when we are trying to listen."
"I take a lot of notes in meetings, but I am trying to view how the person I am listening to perceives me in the process."
"Great class Kai, you do cover lots of content in a short time. Thanks for being so organized."
"This is valuable, and I expect to use the content at a meeting tonight."
"I approached the meeting with the belief that the other participants had goals that were just as important as mine and ideas that were just as good as mine, and I tried to use my own skills to develop and promote their ideas and perspectives rather than my own.
Listening here provides the opportunity to find the best ideas and come to the best decisions, even if they’re not the ones I would have supported from the outset."
