Time to Read and have your blood pressure reduced – 100 seconds
This week I closed a digital media event, worked with a board and continued our HR transformation with the Phoenix Group.
Across all of these, once I again, I realised the value of a small action that we can all do. One that is so much more valuable when we feel too stressed, too busy or in too much of a hurry to even contemplate such an action. This will help you to be calm, to help build your relationships and above all help you take more control over your life.
When you listen or observe another person, it will help you, at all levels, when you put your own opinions, views and judgements to one side, and simply notice what is being said, or done. That way you focus on the “facts” of the situation and get to the heart of what is being said. That way, you pay total and absolute attention to the person (the single biggest compliment anyone can pay to anyone else). And that way, you both move forward in your relationship.
A winner, all round, and as with most strategies that work, so very simple…while at the same time, being so very hard.
With love to you all
