Listening is such a neglected communication skill!
One thing I’ve discovered is people in today’s world often don’t feel like anyone is listening to them everyone is broadcasting: blogs videos YouTube crazy people on the news. Everyone’s talking, and so few people are listening. Most of us feel like our perspective is never heard or accepted or even understood.
As an introvert, I consider it to be one of my secret weapons; asking good questions and listening are the two keys for me to be able to connect with others as an introvert without draining myself too much.
Here I share a mini-lesson from my weekly Professional Development Essentials class on Six Common Barriers to Listening.
