Real Life Example of Active Listening

Have you ever reflected on a person who is awaiting the final judgment in court - guilty or not guilty – on the fall of the hammer? Even if a mother-of-all bomb was to fall next to him, he would have heard nothing and remained unmoved. All that counts to him is the fall of the hammer! This is active listening – real and profound.
Active listening implies that everything else than what the speaker is saying is of ‘no' significance, that you will hold your verdict till after the speaker has ended his input, your body language must reflect empathy, understanding, compassion, and whether is assent or dissent from your end show respect. You would then have heard, understood and built a real affiliation with the speaker.
