Be A Good Listener

The art of listening is a life skill that everyone should be taught in school, but unfortunately we are not. A good listener will hear the spoken words AND what the person meant to say but did not say clearly for whatever reason. To be a good listener you must first be quiet and not interrupt when someone is speaking; you must hear every word that is spoken. Next, you must not be overly defensive or jump to conclusions too quickly. This is especially true when conversations are regarding conflict resolution or differences of opinion. Being understanding and agreeable will make conversations more productive, as others will be more willing to open up to you. After hearing someone’s words, you must interpret objectively what was said and maybe even what was not said before responding appropriately. Remember a good listener should not be angered or challenged by what is said, as it is only the opinion of another person.
