    what listening actually entailed

    The following in red is confusing. Would you please paraphrase what it's saying more easily?

    And after you've introduced these strategies to your group, open the floor for debate. What you'll hear will move you in ways that you wouldn't expect, for as one CEO said, after practicing Compassionate Communication with the members of his board, "I never realized before what listening actually entailed.

    And one more please. In the above I'm confused about the meaning of "move" in the context? Does it mean "to make someone change from one opinion or way of thinking to another" or "to make someone feel strong feeings"?

    Thank you.

    Re: what listening actually entailed

    "Move" here means to bring out feelings.

    The CEO is saying that when you actually listen to people, it involves more than just hearing what they say. If you actually listen, then you become involved in what the people are saying and wanting to help the people you are listening to or take their ideas seriously.
