What are tips to good listening?

Stay present. Put all your attention on the speaker. Get at their eye level. Take a slow quiet deep breath & relax the muscles around your eyes. Do this every time you feel your mind wander. Gradually adopt their body posture.If they lean in, you lean in. We like people who are like us. People remember how they feel when they're w/ us far more than what we say. Let someone feel "heard" & their world changes.
Don't interrupt. Listening is a skill. Being able to hear what the other person is saying without interrupting or trying to fix things. Give feedback...When someone says something..Reflect. "this is what i heard you say" so that you stay on the same page. Ask questions to get more info. Be sincere and honest and caring. Ask if this person wants help or jus to vent. Ask what they need form you...
