Learning To Be A Power Listener | Fast Company

Learning To Be A Power Listener | Fast Company | Knowledge Broker | Scoop.it
In business, the consequences of failing to properly frame or assess an issue can be dire. Often such a misdiagnosis is the result of not having the right information.

 

I am always looking for really good articles on listening because that is a foundation skill for working with stories.  Today I found another one!

 

What I like about this article is that it carefully articulates the listening archetypes to avoid.  And the author gives plenty of examples in the post.

 

Maybe you'll find yourself here -- maybe not. I know when I am stressed, I can be an 'Answer Man.'

 

But just knowing this helps me to slide out of it and move back into attentive/appreciative listening.

 

Listening is not always easy -- but it is essential.  I hope this article -- by focusing on what not to do -- leads us all into taking action on what we need to do.
