Julian Treasure opens the video with a demonstration of the power of sound. You will learn about many uses for sound you had no idea existed. For example, did you know you can tell the size of a room with your eyes closed based on how sound is reverberated?
I like this video because Julian is a very effective communicator and his instructions are easy to follow and practice yourself
In a conversation he says effective listening is...
1. Receive - pay attention
2. Appreciate - make little noises of acknowledgement
3. Summarise - sum up their point to show you understand
4. Ask - ask a question
He also talks about a few exercises that will increase your appreciation for sounds. But you have to watch the video for those : )
