How Listening Well Builds Stronger Communication and Deeper Connections

No relationship is perfect--but it can be better. The secret to stronger relationships isn't to become more charming or funny or to solve the world's problems or to just try harder. All you have to do is listen. It's that simple.

Yet our noisy culture hasn't equipped us to do this. With warmth and a touch of humor, personal coach and expert communicator Becky Harling shares simple, practical listening tools that will help you become a person others are drawn to and want to spend time with, as well as how to:
- be fully present
- offer understanding instead of advice
- ask great questions
- create a sense of safety and trust
- manage your body language
- and more!

When you learn to listen well, your marriage will grow stronger, your parenting will flourish, your friendships will thrive, and your influence at work will increase. You will be amazed at how one simple act can transform the hearts of others--as well as your own.


*I received a copy from the author for review. This does not affect my review.*

Very well written and insightful. I find times when I struggle to listen, and am quick to speak. This book gives useful and practical ways to practice listening and truly hearing what others have to say. This is my first time reading a book by this author, but I enjoyed how Becky Harling uses examples of her life, and other every day situations to help readers relate to the author, and see how being a better listener can help us in our everyday life. The Bible tells us to be slow to speak and quick to listen, and this book follows that example, and teaches that lesson with encouragement and respect.
