How do you become a better listener? In today’s world, communication is more important than ever but we spend less and less time listening to one other. In this episode, I reveal the 4 keys to becoming an effective listener.
Listening is powerful. It saves marriages and money and prevents mistakes and misunderstandings. You should listen twice as much as you speak. But it’s hard to listen to people today. We record everything so we’re not building listening skills, plus we are overloaded with all the noise out there. We are trained nowadays to want the soundbites of wisdom, which has weakened our listening muscles. The good news? There is no such thing as a good or bad listener. There’s only a trained listener or an untrained listener. Learn how to deeply engage with people so they feel understood.
