Ladder of Inference

Open talking and listening we need to do both

Open Talking and Listeningwe need to do both

  • Talking openly – willing to expose to others what is inside us

  • Listening openly – willing to expose ourselves to something new from others

  • Doing both opens new realities

Open talking

Tell a personal experience about leadership to a friend.

Listen intently to the story and paraphrase.

When somebody speaks personally, passionately, and from the heart, the conversation deepens.

Speak up and speak in the here and now – think, feel, sense, want, and do.

Open Talking

Open listening

Open Listening

  • Remember the root of not listening is knowing if I already “know” the truth, why do I need to listen?

  • How do you feel when you are listened to?

  • What do you learn when you listen to others?

Student leadership

    Trust as belief in someone versus obligation

    The goal – an equal partnership

    Why is trust important to you?

    How do you know when someone trusts you?

    If I believe you are capable we are in this together

    If I expect you to take some action it requires dependency
