I went out for entertainment and laughs.
What I got was an ‘over the top’ demonstration of listening power.
Christian & Katalina’s Mind Tripping show was fantastic.
The magical aspect of mindreading is so intriguing. In my field of team and leadership development, ‘Don’t expect me to read your mind,’ is a common excuse. From now on I will respond differently to this statement.
Reading minds and nonverbal cues provide critical information, particularly for leaders.
The trick is to give the unspoken
thought a voice.
How do you do this?
- Listen with all your senses to hear what is behind the words, hear nonverbal cues, the unspoken words
- Draw out information by asking open ended questions
- Practice centering daily – become the calm eye of the storm – without this good listening is impossible
- Avoid multi-tasking while listening; mindreading requires full attention
What magic tips do you have to become an ‘over the top’ mind reader?
It would be nice sometimes if I could read minds 🙂 Listening with the senses is important to understanding people. Be in the now, know and understand body language, active listening are all important parts of reading people. Good post 🙂
I, too, loved the Mind-Tripping Show. I heard a speaker refer to “listening with a third ear”. The first ear is used to hear what is said. The second is used to hear what is NOT said. The third ear listens for what the person doesn’t even know they want to say, but are nontheless expressing.
Thanks for sharing that Rhoda! I’ve not heard that before.
