Yes there is another type of listening to think about. The idea of "deep" listening feels intense, purposeful and impactful to me. But my thinking so doesn't make it true. I needed to ask the question.

Having this conversation with thoughtful, intentional people like Jona Ohm, APR, Stewart Wiggins and James Blair made it the perfect place to explore the idea of deep listening while also practicing deep listening.
