I'm not always sure why we talk but one thing is certain- we talk, a LOT! In a recent conversation a friend mentioned his on-going effort to listen more attentively and an adaptive coaching tool he has employed to do so. It’s called WAIT (Why Am I Talking). I love the idea but then it got me thinking. Why are we talking? What is the impact of all that talk?
I believe the impact is of greater importance but without knowing why we are talking it really doesn’t matter so much. So, at any given moment, why are we talking?
