Habit of the Week: Habit 5 – Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
Quote of the Week: “One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.” –Bryant H. McGill
Home Connection: Seek first to understand, then to be understood is a difficult habit to grow. However, it can be done through practice, a caring attitude, and an open ear. Often our first thought is to make sure everyone knows what we have to say, but it is important for us to LISTEN to what others have to say. Active listening shows you care, know what you are talking about, and will help you be effective in your relationships or teams. Next time you get into a conversation with your kiddos – Seek first to understand, then to be understood!
