Guidelines for Empathic Listening Be attentive. Be interested. Be alert and not distracted. Create a positive atmosphere through nonverbal behavior. Be a sounding board -- allow the speaker to bounce ideas and feelings off you while assuming a nonjudgmental, non-critical manner. Don't ask a lot of questions. They can give the impression you are "grilling" the speaker. Act like a mirror -- reflect back what you think the speaker is saying and feeling. Indicate you are listening by Providing brief, noncommittal acknowledging responses, e.g., "Uh-huh," "I see." Invitations to say more, e.g., "Tell me about it," "I'd like to hear about that." Follow good listening "ground rules:" Don't interrupt. Don't change the subject or move in a new direction. Don't rehearse in your own head. Don't interrogate. Don't teach. Don't give advice. Do reflect back to the speaker what you understand and how you think the speaker feels
