The best way to help is to listen


How often do you truly listen to people, without judgement and without giving advice? This week’s lesson is about the power of doing just that.

I warn you though – it starts with a pretty harrowing story. Be prepared!

You can listen to the TED talk here: The best way to talk is often just to listen.

This talk may prompt you to think about which issues are surrounded by stigma in your country or culture. If you join any of our advanced chats this week, you will likely find that there are big contrasts between your country and others.

I hope you find this talk interesting and inspiring, as I did. The speaker is a really resilient and incredible woman. 

Have a wonderful week. I’ll see you in the classroom.
