Listening is something we all naturally do, but there is a difference in listening to hear what someone is saying and listening to really understand someone. Actively listening with empathy is critical to building authentic connections in our personal and professional lives. Fortunately, it's a skill we can all learn and practice daily.

On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher talks with Ximena Vengoechea, a user researcher, writer, and illustrator, about really listening to develop stronger relationships and how to train ourselves to be better listeners.

When I say we need to cultivate and bring in a listening mindset, what I really mean is that we are being intentional as we enter conversation and specifically, we are bringing three qualities in which are humility, curiosity, and empathy

– Ximena Vengoechea, author of Listen Like You Mean it: Reclaiming the Lost Art of True Connection
