7 Powerful Tips To Becoming a Better Listener

7 Powerful Tips To Becoming a Better Listener | Teaching Interpersonal Communication in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it

Recently, I was talking to someone who was not very present in the conversation. Even though she would nod and say "Yeah" the whole time we communicated, her follow-up comments would reveal she wasn't listening 100%.

 

For example, there was a point when I talking about A, but she kept replying to me as if I was saying B.
