Feeling heard in our relationships is one of the best feelings we can have. However, most of us have never been taught how to be a good listener for our friends, family and romantic partners. Listen to today’s show to learn how to become a better listener and begin improving your relationships right away!

In this episode with Terri Lonowski, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Why listening is so important to a healthy relationship
  • Actionable tools to become a deep listener
  • What to do if you feel your partner is not a good listener
  • The important questions to ask yourself to become a better listener
  • How to communicate on a deeper level
  • And much more!

In our relationships we often are NOT feeling heard, even though we’re hardwired to thrive when we feel seen and heard and supported by others. Period! Terri Lonowski, M.Ed., has dedicated her energy and talents toward offering a simple solution to this gigantic problem called Soulful Listening™.

Terri is a TEDx Speaker, Keynote Speaker, and Founder of Soulful Listening™. She earned a M.Ed. in Educational Psychology from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln and has made significant professional contributions throughout her career. These include serving as chair of the American Counseling Association Foundation, representing over 50,000 professional counselors nationwide; holding a Gubernatorial appointment to the Nebraska State Workforce Investment Board; and leading nationwide human centered design teams, not once but twice, to showcase Workforce Innovations at The White House.
