Discussion #1, Empathic Listening
Share the concept of empathy with someone close to you. Tell him or her you want to work on really listening to others and ask for their feedback. How did you do? How did it make that person feel? Describe your experiences in this topic post.
Discussion #2, Watching to Listen
