Connective Listening

Successful money conversations between partners in a committed relationship require the use of certain skills. One is “connective” listening.

Are you listening to reply or defend?
Are you listening to understand?

This is among the “self-check-in” techniques I had the opportunity to discuss at the CPA Canada Mastering Money Conference.

Thank you to CPA Canada for the invitation as the opening morning plenary speaker. And thank you to the audience for their very lively participation in: “What works?” and “What doesn’t work?” in money conversations.
