Trump is the master of interruption, disagreement, always being right, and demeaning everyone… bullying  takin The question remains “Does Donald Trump Listen through his rant?  Why bother to discuss it – when it is a fete complete. A bully doesn’t listen… only reacts. It’s scary to imagine how he would insult a world leader by refusing to honor protocol…. and the repercussions that would follow. Let’s not go there…

Quoting experts that went beyond the normal platitudes of acknowledging you understood what what said, repeating it in a different way. Allowing the person talking to finish a thought without interruption…and so on.  Could Trumpster adhere to any of the following communication skills?  

1: The listener creates a safe environment in which difficult, complex, or emotional issues can be discussed.

2: The listener clears away distractions like phones and laptops, focusing attention on the other person and making appropriate eye-contact. (This behavior not only affects how you are perceived as the listener; it immediately influences the listener’s own attitudes and inner feelings. Acting the part changes how you feel inside. This in turn makes you a better listener.)

3: The listener seeks to understand the substance of what the other person is saying. They capture ideas, ask questions, and restate issues to confirm that their understanding is correct.

4: The listener observes nonbverbal cues, such as facial expressions, perspiration, respiration rates, gestures, posture, and numerous other subtle body language signals. It is estimated that 80% of what we communicate comes from these signals. It sounds strange to some, but you listen with your eyes as well as your ears.

5: The listener increasingly understands the other person’s emotions and feelings about the topic at hand, and identifies and acknowledges them. The listener empathizes with and validates those feelings in a supportive, nonjudgmental way.

6: The listener asks questions that clarify assumptions the other person holds and helps the other person to see the issue in a new light. This could include the listener injecting some thoughts and ideas about the topic that could be useful to the other person. However, good listeners never highjack the conversation so that they or their issues become the subject of the discussion.

Weigh in with your opinions. This is our country, our world that is at stake.
