Silence

NMS_4593_2

“Silence is a source of great strength,” Lao Tzu. To be able to hear what people are trying to tell us we need to be silent, and actively listen with an open mind without bias. This is not always easy, and often requires a bit of practise. Today’s challenge: listen on the speaker’s message without prejudging the conversation. Remember to practise this at home, as well at work. //Marianne
