Silence and Pause

Silence and Pauses are powerful tools to create space for thinking. Silence can be driven by a leader in a “natural” way by just pausing or in an explicitly way. In the explicit way it is often accompanied by a task such as “spend the next 5 minutes to write down your thoughts about ..”

Silence is also one of the many elements to observe under Level 3 listening, seeĀ Listening Levels
