Take Time to Listen

On May 8th, 2013, posted in: BIZ-TIP, Productivity by 0 Comment

Listening is becoming a lost art. In this hurried lifestyle most of us live in, listening requires that you slow down. Too often it’s overlooked and relationships suffer. When listening is overlooked, people feel like their opinions, issues or concerns don’t matter.

To establish rapport, spend more time listening than you do speaking. It’s been said that’s why we have 2 ears and 1 mouth. Listening can’t be done emailing or texting so pick up the phone or better yet get together. If you are on the phone, don’t multi-task so that you can fully concentrate on the call.

Nothing will replace a good conversation as a way to build a strong relationship.
