You’ve Listened, Now You Are Ready to Give Supportive Feedback 

Most of us don’t want to be told what we should do which is why old school network marketing gives our profession a bad name.  Instead, you are going to give your friend feedback that tells her what you have heard her say and you will express the emotions that you have about her choice with Supportive Feedback.

Now you can make a difference in your friend’s life with Helpful Questions. 

What is a Helpful Question?  It is a directive question you ask that cannot be answered with a yes or no.  You want to direct the conversation in the most helpful area for your friend. This is not where you pick up the agenda you have released.  But since you have been using Reflective and Interpretive Listening you have learned what is on your friend’s mind.  Now it is time to dive deeper with a Helpful Question.  This requires curiosity. You may be reluctant to follow your curiosity. You may have been conditioned to ignore your curiosity because it is considered rude. 

Now you can learn to hear hidden messages using Interpretive Listening

You know that communication is much more than words. You learn what is being communicated by body language and tone of voice as well as the spoken words.  You are not only learning but if you use Interpretive Listening well, your friend will more clearly understand what she is thinking. She will also learn how she sounds to others.  As this happens you are opening the door to true communication. 

When you listen, your friend listens too, if you use Reflective Listening

One of the benefits of Reflective Listening is to put your sister or friend at ease. If they know that you just joined one of those things, they know what is coming. They may not want to join you, but they don’t want to say no either.  By Reflectively Listening, you begin to release your agenda.   They will sense that and realize that they can say no.   It may make it easier for them to eventually say yes.
