What is listening?

Listening does not mean hearing just to respond. It is hearing to understand.

Listening is not to judge/analyse what the other person is saying, it means to fully concentrate on what is being said. It is about using empathy & compassion & understanding the complete message, including the underlying emotional message conveyed.

Active listening is a technique to develop our ability to listen and make an effort to truly understand what the other person is trying to say.
