“He who talks the most - listens least” That is a quote I came up with a few years ago while in a wacky mood with my sister. I don’t always put it to practice but there is strength in its words particularly if you are always talking or you’re a really good listener.
I am not a perfect listener but the more I listen, the better person I am. The more talking I do in a conversation the more concerned I am with what I’m going to say versus what anyone else has to say.
It should be fact that good listening skills save time and relationships. In business, good listening saves a lot of money and resources. In a relationship, good listening helps us hear what is and what is not being said.
What are you – a good listener or good talker? Are you working to change your listening skills for the better and if so how are you doing it?
