If we have a commitment to Equality and we value Diversity – it will show in our communication. We will:

  • Respect others and value the richness that difference brings

  • Recognise that others have different life experiences and see life / the world differently

  • Acknowledge that other people legitimately hold different Values and Beliefs

  • Take responsibility for ourselves – our intention, our actions and the consequences

  • Be prepared to adjust our communications

  • Not be ‘a bystander’ where there is difference and conflict

Rapport

  • To aid communication we ‘mirror’ and ‘match’ the other person - using posture, body language, gestures, language, speaking tone and pace, breathing, eye contact

  • We ‘pace’ to engage the other person

  • We ‘lead’ to change communication or the emotional state of others

  • We ‘mismatch’ - to interrupt / end communication

Staff Conference 1/5/08


Active listening l.jpg

Listening

Active listening

What can make it difficult for us to listen actively:

  • Speed of thought

    • Most people talk at 125 words while our brains can process 800 words in this time. The brain often searches for some activity to occupy it

  • Distractions

    • Environmental barriers and distractions

  • The way the other person speaks

    • Voice, language, structural challenges

  • Our processing

    • Word triggers, preconceptions, resistance,

  • Our interruptions

Staff Conference 1/5/08


Slide12 l.jpg

Listening

  • People who really listen reflect upon the content of the message and search for meaning. They suspend judgment while they:

    • listen through the words for the central ideas

    • notice what is not being said

    • mentally summarise what the person has been saying

    • consider the evidence presented by the speaker

    • try to understand the central point of the argument

    • observe the non-verbal communication of the speaker in order to get a better understanding of the total message

    • give signals to show that they are listening
