With this in mind, it seems to me that the key to great relationships is for us to listen first to make sure that we fully understand the other person deeply. When another person knows that we care about them enough to hear them out without judgment, what do you think that will do to the trust they begin having in us? Try it. When done with consistency over the course of time, the results are magical.
In future blogs we’ll be talking more about this principle. So to summarize this blog…
