A creative, safe, focused space. What are we describing here? A successful focus group environment-- and also a mind that has become quiet and powerful through meditation. When we engage in meditation, we bring ourselves to a place of clarity and calm. This is precisely the mind we need to employ in order to authentically connect with our respondents.
Through practicing meditation, we are primed to listen in new ways. We open ourselves up to be able to slip into the shoes of others, to develop empathy and understanding – and appreciation – of where others are coming from. An open-hearted mind engenders trust, which leads to better focus groups and better client relationships.
