Ideas.ted. Sarah Jane Souther / TED Betty Bigombe had already hiked eight miles through the jungle, and there was still no sign of life.


She was no stranger to a long walk — growing up in northern Uganda, she’d walked four miles each way to school. She subsisted on one meal a day in a communal homestead where her uncle had eight wives. Now she had made it all the way to the Ugandan Parliament, and she was undertaking a challenge that none of her colleagues would brave: Trying to make peace with a warlord. Joseph Kony was the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army. In the early 1990s, Betty convinced the Ugandan president to send her in to see if she could stop the violence. When Betty finally made contact with the rebels after months of effort, they were insulted at the prospect of negotiating with a woman. Although the peace effort didn’t succeed, opening Kony’s mind to conversation was a remarkable accomplishment. The key, she explained, was not persuading or even coaxing, but listening.

Up until then, all Kevin’s key professional influences—in the U.S. Navy, where he began his career, and then at General Electric and MCI—had exemplified certain core principles of leadership. His colleagues were confident, employed a command-and-control style of leadership, and made their expectations clear. Kevin adopted that style, which came naturally to him and allowed him to rise rapidly on the career ladder.

Recently the top executives of a major manufacturing plant in the Chicago area were asked to survey the role that listening plays in their work.


Later, an executive seminar on listening was held. Here are three typical comments made by participants: “Frankly, I had never thought of listening as an important subject by itself. But now that I am aware of it, I think that perhaps 80% of my work depends on my listening to someone, or on someone else listening to me.” “I’ve been thinking back about things that have gone wrong over the past couple of years, and I suddenly realized that many of the troubles have resulted from someone not hearing something, or getting it in a distorted way.” 04092020 BCO 008.

The Age Of The Loudest Voice Is Over, Welcome To The Decade Of Listening

Over the last ten years in politics, loud, outspoken populists, from all sides of the political spectrum, spurred polarization and divided nations globally. At the same time in business, it has seemed as though the louder the cries of the untouchable entrepreneur, the higher the perceived value of their company, regardless of quantifiable success. Politicians and companies, alike, have been built up solely on bluster and hype, rather than credibility or scientific backing. But no, there are no prizes for guessing the key figureheads here, as there are countless to choose from and we all know the main culprits.

Speaking from 25 years of experience in the industry, I remind them that an important role of the public relations professional is to listen. Wilbur Schramm, a mass communications scholar, said, “Listening is a powerful tool.” Listening is underrated, and organizations would benefit greatly by taking Schramm’s advice. An article in the Public Relations Journal describes listening as “a complex function of affective processes (involving motivation to attend to others), behavioral processes (involving verbal or nonverbal feedback) and cognitive processes (involving attending to, understanding, receiving and interpreting content and messages).” Emotional validation is a basic human need. Here are five reasons to prioritize this important tool in the management process. Listening-relationships-marriage-closeness-communication-bias.amp.

A prime example, he said, was when he gave his wife what he thought was the perfect gift: a behind-the-scenes tour of the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, during which she would get to feed the dolphins, beluga whales and penguins.


He thought she’d love it because she’d once expressed interest in swimming with dolphins. But she didn’t love it. At all. She was annoyed because she was pregnant at the time and suffering from morning sickness. How to Be a Better Listener - Smarter Living Guides.

The Sound of Silence: An Illustrated Serenade to the Art of Listening to One’s Inner Voice Amid the Noise of Modern Life.

“There are many fine things which we cannot say if we have to shout,” Henry David Thoreau observed in contemplating how silence ennobles speech. A year earlier, he had written in his journal: “I wish to hear the silence of the night, for the silence is something positive and to be heard.” It’s a sentiment of almost unbearable bittersweetness today, a century and a half later, as we find ourselves immersed in a culture that increasingly mistakes loudness for authority, vociferousness for voice, screaming for substance.

We seem to have forgotten what Susan Sontag reminded us half a century ago — that “silence remains, inescapably, a form of speech,” that it has its own aesthetic, and that learning to wield it is among the great arts of living. Goldsaito’s lyrical writing, part ballad and part haiku, and Kuo’s illustrations, midway between manga and Chris Ware yet thoroughly original, carry the story with effortless poetic enchantment.

If you have pets, you probably spend at least some time each day talking to them. On an intellectual level, most of us realize that our pets don’t really understand a lot of what we say to them. Although they can master the meaning of many words, the odds that they fully understand what we’re saying when we have a conversation with them is slim.

Think back to the last conversation you had. Were you focused on the other person and what the other person was saying? Were you thinking about what you wanted to say next while your conversation partner was still mid-sentence? Was your mind somewhere else entirely—the backlog of emails in your inbox, perhaps, or what to have for lunch today? Your answers to those questions can help you determine what type of communication you use: active or passive. Active communication happens when you give your full attention to your conversation partner, really listen to them, and respond appropriately.
