Good Listening Allows for a Good Response
zohra, Teacher, Pakistan

Only a good listener can become a good speaker. Because an accurate period of listening gives him/her ample time to analyze and come to a proper judgment, while a rushed, hurried reply might spoil manythings.

Active Listening is Essential Part of Effective Communication
Prof. Alkis S. Magdalinos, Business Consultant, Greece
Active listening is a crucial part of the effective communication process.
Without it, we cannot communicate properly and will either not understand or misinterpret what is being said.
Both of these outcomes are negative and to be avoided. We should therefore pay attention to what is being said (if it is of interest to us).

Good Listening Leads to Good Understanding
يوسف عبد الله محمد حمد النيل, Teacher, Sudan
Good listening is state of being silent during hearing to others.
Such a state leads one to understand what the others are saying and meaning.
For example, a good judge will listen to both parties in a law suit concisely and precisely. Thus he will be able to reach a fair verdict (response).

Greater Patience Leads to Greater Understanding
Jayanthi P, Manager, United Arab Emirates
Being a good and patient listener helps you not only solve many problems at work or home, but also allows one to see the world through the eyes of others, thereby opening your understanding and enhancing your capacity for empathy and empathic response.

Good Listening
Prof. Alkis S. Magdalinos, Business Consultant, Greece
Yusuf and Jayanthi, your comments are excellent!
Both being silent and patient are essential to good listening and to allow for a good response.
