Getting People to Listen

Here's a simple way to offer advice that people NEED and have them actually LISTEN to you. You've heard it said that people don't care what you know until they know that you care. That's true! Now, here's the way to show them that you care quickly and in in a few short statements:

1. "I understand what you're feeling." - Use this statement (or one like it) to make it clear that you are listening and relating to what is on their heart and mind.

2. "I have felt the same way." - Show them that you've been there before...either in the same situation or in a similar one.

3. "Here's what I've found." - Detail what you learned and how you rose out of that place in life. This becomes their action items.

Don't quote these directly! That said, if you use this pattern, people will receive what they need to hear from you much better. They will feel that you care...and then care about what you know!
