SOFT SKILL: Listening

What? What did you say? Oh, that’s not your name? Bet you can’t say you’ve never used those lines before. Ok, so maybe there’s a few of you out there who have your listening skills honed to perfection. But, for those of us who aren’t in that category, today is the day to make changes! Have you thought of listening as “just hearing what is said”? Actually, a person with good listening skills has the ability to turn the dynamics of a conversation from something negative to something positive. Wouldn’t that be a head-turner to be the pivotal person who, simply through their listening skills and subsequent learned attributes, is able to bring calm to a volatile situation? I know it can be tedious for some to have to read through articles completely, the temptation is to skim an article and say you to yourself you now know the content. We want you to absorb every shred of information in order to be the best you can be. We’ve found two articles we believe have valuable, instructive material to set you on the right path.
