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

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.
