Why aren't we better at listening?
Listen to Ernesto Sirolli’s fascinating TED talk, Want to help someone? Shut up and listen!! Yes, the video is 17 minutes long, and Ernesto has a thick Italian accent, but please listen to it all the way through before answering. Find a moment when you have the time. The last two minutes of the talk are where the jewels lie, but there is no shortcut into the mine where they are buried.
Enjoy the video, and let me know what you think. And if you think I have been a poor example of his “Enterprise Facilitation” system, you’re right. I will be working on getting better at that.
