Here continues Part 2 of 2 speaking and listening with John on the topic of questions…
0:08 HOW TO LISTEN to someone, Do this…
1:35 HEART TO HEART & HEAD TO HEAD. The head, that’s the words. The heart, that’s the music, the _____________ of what we say.
2:05 The DRUNKEN MONKEY inside your head that’s got to…
2:23 GOD DELIVER ME, just listen. Because the right/wrong, true/false doesn’t matter. What matters is that the other person is ___________ .
4:03 If you look at the world right now PEOPLE AIN’T LISTENING. Do you think the North Koreans are listening to the Americans in this ____________ ?
4:33 LISTENING REQUIRES a pause… Some more s p a c e in between the __________ because the listening doesn’t come from us it comes from our giving it some s p a c e some t i m e to reveal itself.
6:13 LET GO LET GOD rather than “…if it’s going to be it’s up to me…” Faith gives it to a source far greater than John’s ________ .
7:53 The KEY TO SPEAKING is asking questions because…
10:03 Consider the VALUE of sitting down with a prospect and instead of tell, tell, tell… What if you asked questions about who and how that person is in their _________. Because then you would learn…
11:13 John says, “You want to endear yourself to me? Ask me who and how I am. Be interested and curious in me.” In most conversations people are on rails to “be interesting.” TRY BEING INTERESTED.
17:03 INSTRUCTION (request a copy of John’s book by way of sharing a comment, what did you enjoy most about the interview?) Also let us know if you have an interest in some coaching and engaging some deliberate practice in how to take you own speaking and listening to the next level.
18:17 ASK the wrong QUESTIONS, get the wrong answers. Ask the right questions, get the right answers. Take that ______________ and consider the questions that you are asking in most of your conversation today.
18:27 Most conversation today is about “what’s wrong” vs. you asking _______________ about WHAT IS RIGHT? It’s a whole different deal.
18:51 “We can’t solve PROBLEMS with the same _____________ that created them.” So standing in a problem, diminishes greatly our ability to actually solve it.
19:19 We need to GET OUTSIDE of that and look at, “Well, what are we doing right?” What’s __________ here so we can do more of that!
19:49 If we think there is a problem, it’s because we are _____________ too close.
20:11 Listening creates some __________ and a LARGER PERSPECTIVE, a deeper perspective, a wider perspective to pull the thread with the next questions, and the next questions…
21:00 Have you ever said, “I’ll think about it” ? No, don’t, STOP, don’t think about it. Go get into a ___________________ with a human being who knows how to ask questions.
21:31 LIFE IS CREATED in conversation because…
23:33 Are YOU LISTENING TO YOURSELF? The biggest enemy of listening to other people is this voice inside our heads. First and best way out of that is go _________ to somebody else.
23:53 ESPECIALLY talk to someone who knows what it’s like to ask questions because… the _____________ is in the LISTENING.
24:19 Coaching and Mentorship today often misses the PROFOUNDNESS of not only the right question, the ____________ with someone as masterful at it as John is.
24:47 John HONOURS LISTENING, he seeks it out, and he will not let it hide in someone ______________ to “think about it.”
26:07 We HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS, what we don’t have is the right questions. Coaches, Leaders know that “the people” have the answers. What they need are the _______________ .
26:51 The subtitle of John’s book is IN YOUR FACE AND RUDE and he’s not going to apologise because it’s accurate: “You Don’t Listen, And You Talk Too Much.”
