Jan 25, 2018

Determining your negative listening habits will help you understand potential hurdles to becoming a top notch active listener.  Once you understand and are aware of them, you can then start to minimize them.

In this podcast we look at 4 negative listening habits...

The Faker

The Interruptor

The One Upper

The Advice Giver

Which of these do you find yourself doing the most?  

What do you do when you catch yourself doing one of these bad habits?  Answer:  "Call it what it is!"

Part 2 of Active Listening, coming in the next podcast, will focus on strategies you can add to your tool box to improve your listening skills.  Once you are fully aware of how you listen (or don't) then we can spend time working on paraphrasing, summarizing, and parroting.
