Question and answer
How can good listening skills improve your chances for success? Provide examples.
n a word, active listening is the key to success in life. It means the difference in listening, processing, and using information to one’s advantage, and merely “hearing” what a person is saying (i.e. [ letting it go “in one ear and out the other”) – effectively letting important opportunities pass us by. Indeed, active listening entails listening with the entire body – while also observing the
other person’s entire body. It means being aware of the other person’s tone of voice, body language, eye signals, and verbal responses to non verbal stimuli. It also means using your own body to listen – your eyes, your facial expressions, and the way you hold your posture. Those who practice active listening skills tend to accomplish the most in life, because they never miss an opportunity that a more passive listener might not even be aware of. Active listening is not just about only speaking when the moment is right – it is also about not interrupting when an important story or piece of information is being conveyed by a speaker. When someone is trying to express something important to you, allow them to get to the end of a sentence before you interject. When you do interject, it should be to repeat or clarify what has just been said, and thus show the speaker that you have been listening carefully to what they were just saying.
