If you want to be a good communicator you must be a good listener. A good listener looks at the person talking. She does not think about a dozen other things that needs to be done. If you want to connect with your children, your husband, or co worker stop, look, and listen. Try it. It will make a difference. It is hard though. At least it has been for me. My mind keeps wandering and I have to bring it back.
Have a great day!
