Speaker Listener Log
The Speaker Listener technique helps
you listen to each other rather than
interrupting, disagreeing, or thinking of
your response while the other person is
talking. Keep a log of your practices (5-15
minutes each).
Example: Sat. Oct. 2, 15 min. Used S/L
with my partner about time alone/time
together, which has been an issue for
us. It started kind of rough, but then we
listened to each other and cleared up
some misunderstandings.

You can use it secretly:
“Hey, instead of us both talking over each other,
how about we take turns. You want to go first?…”
“Let me see if I heard you right…” “Is this what
you said…?” “My turn now."
