“Wherever you go, go with all your heart” (Confucius)

After years in the world of training and being a Coach, active listening is a constant in my life. The other day in a course I encouraged my students to practice it. It is about listening with full awareness of what is being done, in the present moment, focused on the person who is speaking to us and on the message he or she is transmitting to us, turning off inner voices and stopping the urge to advise, to interrupt, to tell “our story”…

In Coaching, active listening is essential. The Coach asks and… listens and… asks… and the Coachee unravels the knots of the skein, finding his answers from the Coach’s hand. Without active listening this would not be possible.

Surely you come to this blog looking for answers. Let’s see what these tell me! We spend our lives wondering what to do and how to do it: What to do to be happier, to feel better about ourselves, to improve our work, to start that project we always dreamed of, or to be able to continue living the life we have always dreamed of. We have without asking ourselves many questions… heh, heh…

In this blog I am sorry to tell you that you will not find answers. Only questions that you and I will ask ourselves together, and a lot of active listening, and in this way we will find clarifying answers, because the truths found by ourselves, those that suddenly shine with a flash that puts a smile on our faces, are more stronger, they have more value.

So that’s what this blog will be about, sharing experiences, doubts, great ideas or simply everyday things, and asking ourselves questions and practicing active listening (in this case active reading…). Of course you are also invited to participate by telling me what each post suggests to you. I inform you that it is about teamwork, what did you think?

I was reflecting this morning on why I am here in front of the keyboard, starting a blog in which I try to tell you something, and what would be the best way to start doing it, since mine is face to face and direct contact as I have been doing for years. . Then this phrase from Confucius came to me with which I begin to write today. And the answer has emerged easily: I am here following what my heart asks of me, and I am going to do it with all my heart.

Let life surprise us in this new journey. I’ll tell you.
