Why is it that we seem astonished, even grateful, when someone really hears us?
When they lean in and give us their time and attention. How has this basic act become such a rare commodity? Has the one-way street of social media ‘broadcasting’ really marked the end of conversation and listening?

Yes, listening can take time. And it can be uncomfortable. Yet it is a skill that can be cultivated and mastered. It can also be a strategy. And sometimes, it will be the most important thing you ever do.
What if we each took five minutes a day to actively listen?
How might our world change?
