Example text

Ask if there is something that they really want to say, but feel they cant. Ask you can do to make it safe, so they can tell you what it is they are not saying. 42 29. Champion the timid voice All of us are wiser than any one of us. When two or more people get together, there are gems of wisdom waiting to be discovered.

Similar to making it safe for small children to speak freelygreat wisdom out of the mouths of babes – when a skilled listener champions the timid voice they care to convey ongoing respect and provide protection from judgements, criticisms, and ridicule in any form.

Skilful listeners posses a willingness to temporarily suspend whatever needs for self-expression they may have, while they focus on others without any great need for them to be succinct, speedy or clear in what they have to say.
