S:1060 Quote: Attention

(Quotes are capsules of information, reinforcement or enlightenment.)

 

“Being still, I learned to listen.

Listening, I learned to see.

Seeing, I became an invitation and people completed their own sentences….

Listening to their narratives through the feedback loop of my attention, they saw possibilities emerge as if we were at the terminator on the moon where darkness meets light and everything is thrown into relief.”

Richard Thieme

 

Coaching Point: Attention has power. What an opening it is for wisdom to appear. It’s one of the ‘secrets’ of effective coaching.

Don’t you enjoy it when someone gives you their attention?

Do you give your attention to others?
