Is Active Listening Enough?

By Laurie Sudbrink  |  May 2015

Most of us have been taught active listening – it’s when you paraphrase what you heard to check for understanding, and to show that you were listening. But there are times when we need to take it a step further. We need to emotionally connect with someone by showing that we understand how they are feeling.
