5 Skills of Really Amazing Listeners

5 Skills of Really Amazing Listeners | Time Management | Scoop.it

Most people like to think what they have to say is important. If you or I make the effort to share thoughts, feelings, or knowledge, then we want to believe the intended recipient is listening. But honestly, many people are too distracted to really take it all in when someone else is doing the talking. What's worse is that so many just watch mouths move, waiting for the chance to chime in.

 

Great leaders understand the value of active listening and get the most benefit from what others have to share. They understand that if you want to be heard and understood, the first step is learning how to listen yourself. The following are actions shared by those who truly know how to listen. Integrate them into your conversational behavior and you might be surprised what you learn.

Most of us assume that when we try to solve problems, we're drawing on the logical parts of our brains. But, in fact, great strategists seem to draw on the emotional and intuitive parts of their brain much more.

Pierre Gauthier's curator insight, April 29, 2014 5:33 PM

This is an excellent summary of research on problem - solving and the brain.  Huge implications for all leaders.  And the role of attention control is undeniable. A good read.

Jon Taffer shows why it's all about the #Customer Reaction.


He has four rules for making the best decisions when it comes to managing customer reactions:

  1. Everything we do is part of a process, never a result.
  2. Every business process, step, or communication must create a positive customer reaction each and every time.
  3. That reaction is the product.
  4. Any business, no matter what it is, lives or dies by the customer reactions it creates.
He provides in-depth analysis, share your thoughts.

Got a minute? 3 little words that kill productivity - Ask Annie -Fortune Management | Time Management | Scoop.it
A constant stream of interruptions all day long can make it hard to get much actual work done. But it’s possible to take your time back.

I recently had a converstation with  Anne Fisher, CNNMoney.com contributor about Time Locking which increases productivity at work by eliminating interruptions.
