Ready to listen so others feel heard?

Recently I’ve been asked a similar question by several Communication Tips readers. One of you worded it this way:

“Yesterday I received feedback from someone who is important to me. He said, ‘You don’t hear me and I’m having a hard time getting your attention!’ When I look at my behavior I realize he is right. What can I do now?”

Do you have a peer, boss, colleague, or family member who might be struggling to get your attention? If so, you will appreciate this video!

Yes, that is right, our Communication Tips have a new format! If you’re having trouble viewing this video clip, go to to see this tip and discover what to do next.

I LOVE your questions and comments please keep them coming.

All the best,


If you have a question about communication or relationship building, feel free to ask and we may be able to use it in one of the upcoming weekly tips.

Our Weekly Communication Tip is designed to help you reinforce mastery of your own communication style as well as recognize the communication styles of others. These weekly tips are based on my newest book, Conversations for Change(R): 12 Ways to Say It Right When It Matters Most.
