Following my LBC Post on Friday Do you Listen, Will sent me a link to a TED Talk by sound expert Julian Treasure.
In our louder and louder world, We are losing our listening.
In this short, fascinating talk, Julian Treasure shares five ways to re-tune your ears for conscious listening — to other people and the world around you.
Yes, I saw that one a while back (I love Ted talks) and was so impressed. As I am collecting stories around here it has added to my experience.
WWW – I enjoy the TED talks too, only once was I disappointed.
i loved this and am looking forward to finding more of TED. I like the idea of teaching listening in all areas. We did teach some of the skills in school, but mostly listening and responding to one person only. I so loved the idea of three minutes of silence.
Maria – There are some amazing speakers on the TED talks.
Snap! I put up a link to a TED talk yesterday 😀
I love TED talks and I’m a great fan of conscious listening.
People drop clues all the time when talking but if you’re not consciously listening, you won’t pick ’em up!
Steph – It is good to know that you are tip toeing back to the blog world!
That is a very interesting talk and the five strategies that he talks about makes eminent sense. Even for a skilled listener, this talk and the message will be of value to hone the skill. Receive, Appreciate, Summarise and Ask (RASA) should be taught in schools as he suggests. Thank you.
Ramana – I thought that the message in the talk was well worth sharing.
