Hearing Voices

Let our voices be heard.  Maybe a new phrase we can adopt is Think Global. Be Vocal.  How appropriate then that the winner of Best Film of 2011 is The King’s Speech. As the King states in utter frustration: “I have a right to be heard. I have a voice!”

I want to start a discussion then on how we listen and also how we are heard.  In one of our classes this week we discussed being heard and listening and agreed that not interrupting another by cutting them off or by bringing the conversation away from the speaker to you, is sound advice.

Can we share with each other some insights about listening and being heard? Please add your voice.
