Listening

I always learned more by listening more” —Sam Sanders (NPR Politics Podcast)

Below I googled “How Can We Listen Better?” and I found an article on Skills You Need providing 10 steps on how to do just that…

  1. Stop Talking
  2. Relax—prepare yourself to listen. Focus on the speaker.
  3. Put the Speaker at Ease—make eye contact. Nod. Show you are listening.
  4. Remove Distracton
  5. Empathize—try to understand the other person’s point of view.
  6. Be Patient—a pause, even a long pause, does not necessarily mean that the speaker has finished.
  7. Avoid Personal Prejudice—try to be impartial. 
  8. Listen to the Tone—volume and tone both add to what someone is saying.
  9. Listen for Ideas, Not Just Words—you need to get the whole picture, not just the isolated bits and pieces.
  10. Wait and Watch for Non-Verbal Communication—gestures, facial expressions, and eye-movements can all be important.
