Timing: 15 mins

Ingredients:

  • Stop Watch

Directions:

In groups of two taking turns:

One person speaks, the other listens. The speaker picks a topic of personal interest, perhaps a problem they have been working on. The speaker talks for five to seven minutes while the listener says nothing. They may nod or smile or perform other gestures.

Have a discussion. how did it feel to just listen? How often were we thinking of what we wanted to speak about?

Learning Points:

  • Most conflict and miscommunication is due to a lack of listening. It is difficult for many of us to turn our internal monologue and listen to other speak. If we do, the rewards are great.
