“By calmness try to feel the thoughts behind the confusion of [a person’s] verbiage”
What do think of this quote from the book Autobiography of a Yogi? It reminds me that when someone talks, the spoken words are only part of what is being communicated.
I find this particularly relevant when having a coaching session. It is so nice to be really listened to and often the effect is quite noticeable. I had such an experience with Sonia Georgiadou a person I greatly admire and respect as a coach and family friend. If you are curious the attached podcast episode (9 mins) shows the results: before and after.
