How to Be a Better Listener. Stop Talking, Start Listening.

In today’s post, we discuss some tips on how to be a better listener. Whether in a live or virtual setting, these tips will help you better absorb and process information presented to you.

Cynthia Kay’s tips for how to become a better listener:

Focus

  • Dial in on the speaker and tune everything else out.

Be physically still

  • Movement causes us to lose focus, so remain still.

Avoid the urge to “jump in”

  • Let the speaker finish and take a breath before you offer your thoughts

Be aware of your perceptions

  • Really hear what the speaker is saying instead of hearing what you want to hear. It makes a difference.
