Now You are Listening Better, what @ Your Processing Skills?

I am assuming that on Saturday, you invested in your intelligence success, got a free listen coupon, and share this precious gift.


How was the interaction with your listening partner?


Are you getting the information with greater clarity, but feeling clue-less; thinking  that the other person maybe from a different planet ?

Before you give up on shoring up this vital new skill, let me share another insight that may help.


You might have heard about that book entitled, Men are from Mars, and Women are from Venus, that describes the collision differences gender perspectives bring to the conversation.


There is another difference I would like to raise as you strengthen your hold on this vital item of effective communication.


It is the left brain, right brain  biases.


The two hemispheres of our brain process information differently.


Left brainers are serial, detailed processors, while right brainers are parallel processors, focused on the big picture.

Left brainers prefer verbal thinking, while right brainers are visual thinkers.

I confirmed that I am a right brainer. My true passion of innovation and marketing certainly align with this perspective. I start thinking through all my relationships and especially those that have conflict to see how this maybe playing a role in our interactions.


As you soup up your listening skills,  and profile your brain bias, may your relationships blossom.
