Communication Skills – Listening –


Listening is hard work. Staying focused takes effort!

Six ideas to increase success with listening include:


  1. Listen with your ears, your eyes and your heart to determine what is intended beyond what is said.
  2. Take notes; never rely on your memory.
  3. Listen with an open mind even when you don’t agree.
  4. Look for mutual interest or shared benefits.
  5. Get over your biases and prejudices; stay objective
  6. Paraphrase to clarify and confirm information.
  7. Also paraphrase to demonstrate that you understand.
