Supporting the The 7 Habits at home!

Habit 5– Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood


What this means: Listen before you talk. In order to communicate effectively, we must first understand each other.


“I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings.”

“I try to see things from their viewpoints.”

“I listen to others without interrupting.”

“I am confident in voicing my ideas.”

“I look people in the eyes when talking.”


How can I do this in my life?

1. Listen.

2. Put yourself in the other person’s place.

3. Notice a person’s body language, tone, and reflection in their voice.
