Sounds remarkably simple, I know. But listening, and really listening can be two completely different things.
Welcome to the Daily Dose Online with Brian D McIntosh and the Working with People Series, Episode Four! The White Magic of Listening.
Listening doesn’t seem that hard, and it certainly doesn’t seem like the most important communication skill you can have, but I would argue that it is both of those things.
Learning to REALLY listen to people puts you almost at an unfair advantage. You gain insights, earn trust, see opposing points of view, and more. There’s no such thing as clairvoyance, at least for most of us, but being a great listener is the next best thing.
Learn to be a better listener, and you become a better leader, a better friend, and a better communicator.
And THAT’s the DOSE!
