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. Entry #1: Entry #2: Entry #3: 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." Sample Do Not Distribute speaker listener log
