The power of attention
How effective is communication if there is no sense of connection? To what extent can there really be a connection between people if we are only partly present?
Effective and meaningful communication requires being fully present in the here-and-now.
This is easier said than done. Often in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we hardly notice how our thoughts stray, how we are absentminded, how little we observe of ourselves and others and how we listen to be able to respond rather than to understand. So many times when we speak we are more focused on content than on connection.
Attention is the new gold
Relational Presence® is a very effective way to time and again be able to switch to being fully present and to both listen and speak with full attention.
Imagine feeling at ease in a group, there is a real sense of connection and people are listening to what you have to say.
You can apply Relational Presence anywhere in any conversation, in any communicative situation. The method is simple and powerful. It starts with mastering a skill, with practice it becomes a deeply embodied state of being.
