Ellen Naylor's curator insight, February 13, 9:35 AM

Excellent article on listening, which will give you a competitive advantage regardless of your profession. Effective listeners put themselves in a thinking mindset. This gives you a chance to really try to understand what is going on around you. Taking the thinking perspective is the conversational equivalent of the carpenter’s saying "Measure twice, cut once." The ability to extract what people mean from a conversation is one of the most important attributes of any leader. It requires curbing your natural tendency to jump right to a solution to people’s problems.
