Thoughts regarding pacing vs. talking 2.25.8

... Another type of leadership. Rather than “leading,” there are folks who “pace.” Pacing basically means listening attentively and trying to match the person you’re having a conversation with. If they’re excited and loud, you incorporate that into how you respond. If they’re reflective and quiet, you match that, etc.

Interestingly, people who pace are able to achieve higher levels of rapport. When someone “paces” us, we tend to feel more understood and accepted. When we feel this way, we become much more willing to follow a leader. via -Blog.

I wonder if that has something to do with the Clarence Thomas silence.....for two years.....about not asking any questions?
