Video: Five Secrets to Being A Better Listener

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 11/05/14 - updated on 06/07/17

Sound expert Julian Treasure explains how to be a conscious listener

Renowned sound and communication expert, Julian Treasure, claims that we are losing our listening.

We spend 60% of our communication time listening, but only retain 25% of what we hear.

In such a noisy world, where the sound bite rules, accurate and careful listening is rare and the art of conversation has all but disappeared.

Treasure says conscious listening always creates greater understanding.

We need to be able to listen to each other and teach conscious listening to our children.

In this TEDTalk, Treasure offers five simple exercises to help us improve our ability to listen.
