Discussion 1 – Week 2
It takes a little bit of mindfulness and a little bit of attention to others to be a good listener, which helps cultivate emotional nurturing and engagement.
—Deepak Chopra, Indian-American author, alternative medicine practitioner, physician, and public speaker
Throughout the day, people experience interactions with others that may cause misperceptions. Often people react to a situation before taking the time to clarify misunderstandings. Reacting to a situation before being fully aware of the meaning behind another’s behavior or words often leads to additional confusion and escalating negative feedbacks.
In his quote, Deepak Chopra advocates practicing mindfulness to create successful interpersonal communication environments. What does mindfulness mean? How can it help you build your communication competence? How can you train yourself to be aware of interaction as it occurs and respond appropriately to achieve positive results? How can you be sure your perception of an individual’s behavior is accurate?
In this discussion, consider an interpersonal communication scenario involving confusion on the part of both participants. You examine how mindfulness and perception checking can change interpersonal communication outcomes
