Shut Up & Listen

Posted on: April 30th, 2017 by Clear Thinking Team No Comments

Could you create a Listening Post?

Being part of a community of people professionals, this is a shout out to everyone of you who considers themselves to be a good listener…there are plenty of you!!

It’s soon to be Mental Health Awareness week (starting 8th May). I’ve been involved in a conversation today about setting up Listening Posts around the UK during that week.

All we have to do is rock up to a coffee shop or other public space and make ourselves available to listen to people. For those of you who spend time in ‘coffices’ up and down the UK, this could be just your thing.

I’m still working out the exact plan for what I’ll be doing, so I’ll keep you posted.

Do you think you can listen to a stranger, or a friend, and offer them your full attention for a few minutes during the week?

It might only take 10 minutes to truly hear them……

There’s nothing to fix here. No advice to give. Just listen.

I think we can make a big difference to the nation’s mental health and raise awareness of the profound value of simple human connection and the power of just listening!
