I practiced interpersonal and other kinds of curiosity almost all day today—part of my job, in this case. Over the next two days I’m going to have to bring in and comment on what a colleague did today, so I consciously and actively listened and paid attention and simply tried to take in what was going on.
One thing that helped me? Not having responsibility for moving the participants along. And taking notes. I may never be able to decipher everything I wrote on my mind map, but it helped me stay focused and now gives me an overview of the topics covered and themes that came out.
I chose a good week for the 10-day challenge.
