Thanks for sharing very useful tools consistently. Appreciate! As a tutor myself I like the tips and advice from experienced teachers. The video you’ve shared this week ” The size ways to be a better listener” is very useful for anyway one engaging in mentoring, tutoring, and advising, and counseling business. I think if we apply the tips you’ve shared in the first YouTube video, we’ll be successful in our marriages, jobs, or leadership for I believe it is human nature to like being listened to.
I was personally touched by the first two tips- stop giving advice and avoid being judgmental because whenever I believe I am in a better position I try to give advice even without considering if they are ready to receive it. But when I see myself back, that situation was not successful. Instead, I feel that I was successful in those incidents in that I talk less and listen most of the time. The other four tips: paraphrasing, ask questions instead of assuming, expressing empathy, and engaging in positive body language are all useful to be a better teacher, mentor, pastor, counselor, and tutor.
