Listening actively means you already know what you want…and you’re listening for it. What you are listening for is your intention (what do you need the other person to feel, say or do?) I’ve given you lots of examples in my Intentional Acting Tips – but now I’m giving you homework. You watch TV and movies – you have to – you’re an actor. Watch the reaction shots. Watch the shots of actors when they are not speaking. Are they listening for something? Clue: The best ones do!
Know your intention…then listen for it!
