1.Be a Good Listener

We’re not just talking about hearing the words that a person is saying; rather you should be tuned in to their non-verbal communication also.

Is the person avoiding eye contact?

Is their posture open or closed?

Are they fidgeting with their hands?

All of these actions convey a lot of information.

How to be a good listener:

Use clarification questions to follow up on key points and then sum up your understanding to them.
