When you’re a good listener, you pick up information quickly and accurately, you avoid misunderstandings and conflict, and you find it easy to build firm friendships with the people you work with.
Others feel comfortable coming to you with their ideas; and this means that you can work with them to solve key problems.
However, many people are lousy listeners! They let their attention drift, they form their answers before they’ve fully listened to the other person, and they ignore important nonverbal messages.
