Page 1 of 2: Drill 1

This drill is about when to use complete words like "Go on, I'm listening", and when to use encouraging noises like "mmm-mmm".

A pc "in session" is interested in his own case and willing to talk to the auditor. The auditor should be interested in the pc's case and not trying to be interesting. The pc's attention does not really need to be fully on the auditor at all. If the auditor is giving an expected auditing command in the expected manner, the pc's attention only need be partly on the command, not really on the auditor as such at all.

If the pc needs a little nudge to continue talking, an "mmm-mmm" is often sufficient. The more complete words the auditor uses, the more the pc's attention is going to go off the pc's case and on to the auditor. Remember, this is not a repeat of a familiar auditing command, but will be some new communication that demands more of the pc's attention to fully grasp.

So when are more words needed? Well, let's do the drill and see, because I don't really know yet!

  1. Click on Item 01. The pc will give a line. As student/auditor, give a half-ack to encourage the pc to say more.

  2. Listen to the recording you just made. YES. IT NEEDS TO BE RECORDED. Maybe....

  3. Go through all 20 items similarly.
