How to be a good listener?

Listen for curiosity & not for the sake of listening.

When listening to someone, try to have your full focus on them & their story rather than getting distracted or reflecting on your past experience or thinking of an answer or comeback.

Ask questions and take into consideration the whole situation before coming to a solid conclusion. Try to take a step back and analyse the whole situation from the other person’s point of view before giving any answer.
