We learn to really listen, without prejudice, really feeling the neighbor, it is a basis of mental coaching.

“I know I don’t know” we make this Socratic concept our own.
Hello everyone welcome welcome back the new podcast tips, I remind you to go to my website www.marcoprincipi.it, today I continue with the mental coaching and philosophy trend first of all I hope you like it and that it is interesting because for me it is really a source inexhaustible of contents and topics because philosophy really has many things similar to mental coaching.
Today I want to talk to you about one of the cornerstones of the foundations of mental coaching which is active listening, in a nutshell what active listening is: active listening is being able to listen to another person without prejudice.
Listening not only to the sounds but understanding the words and hearing ours a little also means to create a relationship of empathy with the other, it seems a very easy thing but we always me first when I hear someone talking I start with my judgments with my prejudices and my way of thinking.
So I’m tempted to stop right away and that means I’m not really focused on what the other person is saying because I already have an answer or a contradiction or a note in mind.
Here instead we should learn to get rid of all this and learn to listen and to listen precisely without prejudice. it is a beautiful thing but very difficult because I say that I find this same concept in philosophy because I always return to Socrates.
Socrates expressed a great concept, one of his most famous concepts that I know I don’t know. Also in this case I ask you to listen to really understand what he wants to tell us because these sentences are often used inappropriately, instead they are very deep very powerful sentences.
I know that I know I do not know is something that we could almost always use is the one who makes his philosophy of this false dialectical method to his lifestyle. So ask yourself in dialogue with someone and the dialogue was on the philosophical method.
As someone who does not know anything as someone who does not know this allows us to be united to be a clean slate and therefore to be able to absorb what the other tells us without prejudice and why he did this because starting without prejudice without thinking of having himself the absolute truth How many times do we happen to think that we know the absolute truth instead it is not so.
In a dialogue therefore made up of questions like him. He was always dealing with him, his dialectic was based on questions and this also brings us back to mental coaching. He could bring the other person to awareness but also himself and awareness both learned.
During this dialogue and therefore he reconstructed an even deeper knowledge even deeper thanks to a dialogue without prejudice and a dialogue based on presumed ignorance which instead is active listening.
So sometimes even when we talk to a family member or friend we try to practice, we try to really listen to what we are told and maybe we will learn something. Thank you all.
