Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Marcel Proust

When I mentor Certified Legal Nurse Consultants, most recognize and appreciate the 32 years of legal nurse consulting and business experience I bring to their issue. Most listen carefully and act on my advice.

Recently though, I mentored someone who only wanted to do the talking. I hardly got a word in edgewise, and when I did, it was obvious she wasn’t listening. That was unfortunate because she could have really used my advice.

When you’re the student in the presence of an experienced mentor and teacher, it pays to listen. I know because I do this myself. This is one of the easiest ways to see with the new eyes necessary to embark on your next CLNC® voyage.

What are you seeking – new landscapes or new eyes?

I’m Just Askin’

P.S. Comment and share how you know when it’s time to listen.

One thought on “Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Marcel Proust

  1. In the CLNC® business, one has to listen carefully. I place a great value on listening skills. As a nursing instructor I told students there are two forms of listening; one is active and another is passive. Active listening – you also watch body language which can save you from injuries or even death (you have to as a psych nurse), it adds to the message, and then you mentally digest the message before responding. Passive listening is a more distracted form; listening to other sounds (seen people on cell phones while you talk to them?) while not being attentive to the message received. People I have talked to in passive form are very hard to tolerate.
