Good, active listening leads to all sorts of good outcomes.
Active listening means you are engaged, not distracted, and doing your best to pay attention.
Active listening means you are trying to understand the other person, and what matters to them.
Active listening means you are aware, or trying to be aware, of perspectives beyond your own.
And when you have listened actively, you have a better chance of being able to articulate value.
The best communicators are highly aware of what is going on around them, and can therefore get to the point and engage the people they are speaking to. Listening leads to better message development.
Have a great day.
