Important to Ask and Important to Listen

Subir Chowdhury

How many times have you been glancing around the room or down at your phone when someone else was trying to talk to you?

I don’t know about you, but I know a lot of managers who are very smart people except when it comes to listening.  Instead of fully hearing what someone is trying to communicate they cut them off – finish their sentences, or jump to conclusions.  They start looking around, or down at their phones.

But part of having a caring mindset is being able to listen thoughtfully, on purpose.  Without actively listening, you’ll only get part of the story.

Listen to the examples below and see how you can make The Difference.
