Pause, reflect, consider you own emotional state of mind.
Attending to the micro-relationship messages in the eyes, the face, the tone and volume.
Interpreting by recognizing you are trying to understand. The message belongs to the other person.
Reflecting and checking to see if you are interpreting correctly.
Pause attend respond to yes. Pause attend to no.
Become aware of your own inner state of mind.
Learn to notice the micro-relationship messages you are sending.
