Tips To Improve Your Listening Skills

  1. Be fully present. Avoid distractions and multitasking, focusing exclusively on the other person.
  2. Ask a question to better understand and help the conversation go deeper.
  3. Question more. Good questions make for great conversation. The more you listen, the more relevant your comments will be.
  4. Be empathetic. Sometimes we need to experience the other person’s feelings to really understand.
  5. Validate their thoughts and feelings. Doing otherwise risks ending the conversation.
  6. Repeat back what you have heard to communicate and calibrate understanding.
