How to Listen, Hear, and Validate: Break Through Invisible Barriers and Transform Your Relationships (Hardcover)
Healthy relationships involve our feelings being heard, understood, and validated. Unfortunately, this is the exception rather than the rule. Are you doing it wrong, and alienating people versus comforting them? Find out how to walk this fine line.
Uncover the biggest obstacle to the intimate, healthy relationships that we desire and deserve.
How to Listen, Hear, and Validate is all about our top communication struggle - our tendency to react instead of respond, and forget that our goal is to build bridges rather than walls. You'll learn what you've been doing wrong, and why your efforts at getting closer to people - in deep or light manners - have failed. You'll learn actionable techniques and frameworks to have the most productive conversations of your life - ones that will walk away with people praising how empathetic you are.
Most importantly, you will gain profound insights on how to reprogram yourself into a natural communicator.
No more unresolved issues, struggles to get close, or failures from ineffective communication.
