NEXT (New Zealand) - - Contents -

Need to have a chat with your part­ner? Then make sure you’re lis­ten­ing just as much as you’re talk­ing, Tony says. “Know what your wants and needs are, know who you are, and know how you han­dle con­flict, but also be open and hon­est about what their needs are. Sit with them. We’re really good at talk­ing, but we’re rub­bish at lis­ten­ing. And as soon as you lis­ten, em­pathise and val­i­date, ev­ery­thing changes.”
