Active Listening Skills

Active Listening

Active Listening Skills are a part of communication that can often be neglected. This can lead, to miscommunication, misunderstanding, confusion, conflict and many more problematic issues that could be avoided if people were skilled in active listening strategies.

Too often people make the mistake of listening with a view to how they will respond and get their point across. They can't wait for the person to stop talking so that they can have their say. Have you ever been guilty of this? If we listened with a different intent, e.g. to fully comprehend and understand the persons point of view, before formulating our response, we would find that our relationships, outputs, and productivity would benefit greatly.
