Season #2 - Episode #23 – Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood By Stephen Covey

Season #2 - Episode #23 – Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood By Stephen Covey

In this Episode, I will be reviewing the audible book “Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood; Habit 5 Of The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People By Stephen Covey. This audible book will teach you how to seek first to understand, then to be truly understood. A Native American Proverb states: Listen or your tongue will make you deaf. Habit 5 is the habit of mutual understanding. I understand you, therefore you understand me.

Lessons On Seeking First To Understand Then to Be Understood:

  • Lesson #1: One of our biggest obstacles to real communication, is our tendency to use our own experiences and opinions as models for other people to follow. 
  • Lesson #2: Empathy is a form of communication. The keys to listening is with the eyes and with the heart. Do not mistake sympathy for empathy. 
  • Lesson #3: Empathic listening is both an attitude as well as a skill. 
  • Lesson #4: A habit is the intersection between knowledge, skill and desire.
