Listening Brings Success in People Management

Managing anything requires effective communication. Listening is an integral part of communication.
Speaking and writing we learn from childhood onwards. But in listening we rarely receive formal training.
But listening brings success, especially in people management.

Learning to Listen

Yes, listening is an art not taught, or easily learned. I personally seek the counsel of others if I'm not sure how to respond, in addition to considering how I want to formulate a reply that is meaningful and appropriate.

Listening Brings Success in People Management

My favorite reference on communication skills with fresh graduates that I am conducting a workshop is this: "God gave us 2 ears and 1 mouth, but most of the times we behave like we have 3 mouths and no ear!"

Listening is a Good Way to Learn

It's true, listening is very important in people management, but how to learn it? It's difficult and requires us to be quiet.
But it's a good way to learn, because you learn the individual and personal perception of someone else, due to both his speaking and behavior.
