Review – Julian Treasure‟s TEDTalk „5 Ways to Listen Better‟
Do you remember his 5suggestions for how we can bebetter listeners?
Absolute silence for 3 minutes a day Listen for „channels of sound‟ when you are in a noisy place (“How many individual sounds can I hear right now?”) Savouring: try to enjoy the sounds you hear, even if they don‟t seem that interesting or pleasant Consider your listening positions: Are you being passive or active? Reductive or expansive? Criticial or empathetic? RASA: Receive, Appreciate, Summarize, Ask (=pay attention, make noises and use gestures to show you understand: “Uh-huh”, “OK”, “So…”, ask questions.)
Try to apply „RASA‟ as you share your newsstories & discuss current events with eachother.
