‘Cloth Ears’ and the importance of listening…

Just reading some stuff about active listening, listening to oneself and processing what you hear in some of the coaching and mentoring literature…and it made me realise how many phrases and expressions there are that make reference to our ears and the importance of listening! Many of these echo (!) with my experiences as a mentor this year…and I have tried to reflect some of these in my ‘cloth ears’!

A word in your shell like

‘When our ears do glow and tingle, some do talk of us in our absence’ – Pliny

Earmarked

Ear to the ground

All ears

Bend your ear

To fall on deaf ears

To give ear to

In one ear and out the other

Lend me your ears – Julius Caesar, III

Prick up your ears

Pin your ears back
