The ability to be an effective listener is too often taken for granted. Listening requires paying attention, interpreting, and remembering.

A survey of personnel directors found: effective listening was ranked highest among the skills defined as most important for employees.

  • the nine barriers of effective listening
  • the six step listening sequence
  • the eleven reasons why we don’t listen
  • the five ways to listen and respond
