Listening Skills

Do you listen to your employees?listening 


One of the most important aspects of communication is the ability to listen. It is a skill required of leaders, consultants, entrepreneurs, management, teachers, therapists, physicians, spouses, and parents, to name just a few. We often know what we want to say, but we may be totally off base if we don't take the time to listen to what the other person may need. All of our intentions to help an employee, client, patient, friend, child, or student may fail if the individual is not motivated to make the changes that we believe are important.
