The World Economic Forum recently shared that empathy and active listening are among the 10 most important skills needed for 2027. What happens when we listen to each other whilst suspending judging, not interrupting or trying to rescue the other person? What is the way of Ubuntu and how do we deepen our relationships in daily life to find much needed connection again? In this interview, Rachel Smith talks about our inherent connectedness and offers suggestions for being more compassionate with one another. Rachel is a facilitator and leader for individuals and groups and shares the power of active listening as we become more than the stories we tell ourselves.
