  • REFLECTION QUESTION
    Community Engage In Active Listening
    What was it like to actively listen to someone? How did both people and the conversation(s) benefit from active listening?

    It ultimately helps you build trust and understand others people's situations and feelings. With this, it allows you to offer support and empathy. Unlike critical listening, active listening seeks to understand rather than reply.
