The masters of relationships know how to hear what's not being said. What lies beneath, if you will, unlike emotions and they respond to that instead of the words on the surface. So with a co-worker who is griping about a manager you can say, it sounds like you're discouraged. Or with a child who is mad because you won't buy the shoes they want, ask what they are concerned about. Maybe they don't want to be made fun of at school. Raise your relational IQ. Start listening to what lies beneath.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: The masters of relationships, they know how to hear what’s not being said. What lies beneath, if you will, unlike emotions and they respond to that instead of the words on the surface.

So with a co-worker who is griping about a manager you can say, it sounds like you’re really discouraged. Or with a child who is mad at you because you’re not buying the shoes they want, ask what they are concerned about. You might find that they don’t want to be made fun of at school. No, they still aren’t getting the shoes, but that concern-that’s something you want to hug and pay attention to. Raise your relational IQ. Start listening to what lies beneath. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
