Learning to Listen

Karch Kiraly, Head Coach USA Volleyball Women's National Team

3 Time Gold Medalist

Discussion Questions:

  • When you're talking, how can you tell if someone's listening to you or if they're distracted?

  • Why would it be important to listen well, especially on a team?

  • When someone else is talking to you are you listening to their points or trying to figure out your own response?

Ways to Practice:

  • When your coach, parents or friends are talking to you, pay attention to what's happening in your head. Can you focus on listening rather than how you're going to respond?

  • Catch yourself the next time you interrupt someone. Ask them to finish their thought.
