Our Mindset as a Listener
As trained listeners, we know what we are doing. Nevertheless, here are our recommendations for a helpful and meaningful approach /mindset.
For the duration of the conversation, we give our undivided attention our undivided attention.
We respond, but do not judge. We are aware that every person lives their life individually and faces their own personal challenges.
We listen regardless of the topic raised, origin, background, identity, sexuality, religious or political views.
We try not to interrupt.
We give the other person space to open up and discover/explore.
Of course, your own personal limits also apply in this context.
Let the other person know when the time is up.
Let the other person know if you feel uncomfortable with a topic.
Refer to psychotherapeutic or medical services if you see the need.
Take care of yourself. Think carefully about how much time and space you can give.
How do you get started?
Apply with us! Please write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, your listening points (maximum 3 points), a picture and the URL to your website or an email address with which we may integrate you on the page.
We also ask you to sign our compliance rules and send us the signed document via email. You can sign the PDF or sign a printout.
Then make your participation in REDEZEIT known in your social networks. You are much more likely to receive referrals. In return, we will send you lots of pictures, texts and videos after you have joined our REDEZEIT network. You can use this material on Instagram, Facebook, other networks or your website to inform your followers.
Of course, you can also be creative yourself and design your own motifs and texts. Please continue to refer to REDEZEIT FÜR DICH and use the hashtag #virtualsupporttalks - this way we increase the chance that the initiative will grow and become better known.
I wish you wonderful, profound, funny, sad and above all honest conversations.
