  14. Open Talking and Listeningwe need to do both • Talking openly – willing to expose to others what is inside us • Listening openly – willing to expose ourselves to something new from others • Doing both opens new realities

  15. Tell a personal experience about leadership to a friend. Listen intently to the story and paraphrase. When somebody speaks personally, passionately, and from the heart, the conversation deepens. Speak up and speak in the here and now – think, feel, sense, want, and do. Open Talking

  16. Open Listening • Remember the root of not listening is knowing if I already “know” the truth, why do I need to listen? • How do you feel when you are listened to? • What do you learn when you listen to others?
