Nonverbal attending

Nonverbal attending means giving someone your full attention without speaking.

  • Keep your body open to the other person. Try to be relaxed, and lean forward a bit if you're sitting.
  • Maintain eye contact without looking like you are staring.
  • Use simple gestures such as head nods or occasionally say "Mm-hmmm" to communicate encouragement.
  • See how long you can listen without interrupting.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Listening is essential if you want to have a meaningful exchange with another person.

As you listen, questions will come up in your head. But asking questions can interrupt the other person's thinking and derail a conversation.

Reflecting means repeating or rephrasing key content or meaning from the other person.
