Undoubtedly, Asking Questions and Active Listening are two of core competencies of effective coaching. However, “active” listening is only part of the answer. Many don’t realize that Listening is primarily a cognitive activity, but it is perceived behaviorally. How much do you
understand how meaning is made? Some of the latest listening research (Bodie et al., 2020) has identified the 4 habits of listening. If listening is a habit, then we have more control over how we do it in our brain. Listening is important, yet only about 2% of the population has ever had listening training. Much of the listening training focuses on the nonverbals of listening, sometimes referred to as Active Listening, but neglects to cover the cognitive aspect, where meaning is made.
