HEARING/ LISTENING,- the other side of communication...

1) What does it mean?  

2) Is there a difference?  

3) Is listening important to effective communication? Why?  

4) How can you let someone know that you are listening and really 'hearing' what they are saying?  

ADVISING/ RESPONDING,- who needs it?

1) Do you need to give advice when someone shares information about themselves?

2) Do people always want your advice when they've shared information about their situation?

3) Are you more 'helpful' when you give a person the answers they're looking for, or is it better to teach them to flnd their own answers?  

4) What are some dangers of giving advice?
