The Power of Listening

Basic 21st Century Leadership Skills Series:

The Power of Listening

People often think being a good listener is about 3 things:

  1. Remaining silent while others are talking
  2. Using facial expressions or verbal cues like “mmm-hmm”
  3. Being able to repeat what the other person said, word-for-word

Yet surprisingly, those things actually have almost nothing to do with good listening! In fact, some of the best listeners actually go against that common advice. And they enjoy the rewards because of it.

Listening — and I mean really listening — to people like your partner, coworker, boss, or child is perhaps the biggest opportunity in life.

It (1) opens more doors, (2) transforms relationships, and (3) helps you get more of what you want out of life.

Yet, no one ever really teaches you how to listen effectively! There’s no class for “Listening 101”…

Until now.
