Often the one who listens looses...
Lt Col Amit Purty, India
Effective communication is key to success. The first principle is normally to listen to the other(s).
However, in my view the competitive market and the time constraints which are there in today's scenario the person with whom we are communicating already has a good view / ideas as long as you are not interfering in his area of jurisdiction. That is to say the selfish motive of individuals, group, organization is nowadays so strong that often the person which listens and accepts is the looser.

Dr Robin C Hesler, Canada
Many people confuse listening with hearing. One can hear but not listen.
Listening is a critical component of effective communication. When people listen they start to use critical thinking skills by examining what was said and testing it against their beliefs and perceptions as heard and was understood.
Good statement and yes, people today are more into themselves than ever and will lose out. This will cost organizations a lot of money because of the work that has to be done to correct things and put them into risk.

Listening ≠ Accepting

Lt Col Amit Purty,
You should not necessarily accept what you are listening to!
In fact, in battle, you don't listen at all! You just shoot first...
