The ability to listen is by far the greatest tool in your bag of tricks for being able to communicate with others. Being a good listener does two things: It helps you better evaluate the content of the conversation, and it shows the person you are communicating with that you are truly interested in him and what he has to say.

This realization will cause him to open up and reveal information that he wouldn't have, had you not demonstrated that you were interested. He will be a lot more open to your ideas when he finds out that you are interested in his as well.

A person spends more time using his listening skills than any other kind of ability. This ability to be a good listener will determine your success in life. It is really that important! Listening is a skill that takes work and practice to develop.

What does it take to really understand the content of the conversation? Real listening is not a passive act, but an active process that has three basic parts.

It's more than just hearing, though hearing is a part of listening. You can hear noises and not know what they are or even what they mean. But understanding the meaning of a noise is the important point in communication.

Sometimes when a person talks, especially when one speaks rapidly in a monotone, it sounds like a motor running and the listener tends to drift off and tune out.
