Are You An Active Listener?

Are You An Active Listener? | Unplug | Scoop.it
Many of us don't listen as well as we could. Learn how to use "active listening" to make a conscious effort to hear and understand what people are saying.
Susan Taylor's insight:

To truly listen is one of the most important life skils you can develop.  Listening helps you to obtain information, understand, learn, and derive meaning; over and above all of that, it has a major impact on the quality of your relationships.


Unfortunately, research suggests that we are not good listeners. 


The way to become a better listener?  Practice "active listening."


Active listening involves making a conscious effort to hear not only the words that are being said, but more importantly, try to understand the meaning behind those words.


In this blog and video, Mind Tools helps us to pay attention, defer judgement and indicate to another that we truly want to hear what they have to say.
