It is common for people to promote their “excellent communication skills”. However, what many people don’t realize is that to be most effective at speaking, presenting or simply getting your point across, we must also master our listening skills. Communication isn’t a one-way street. If we are not able to actively listen to what’s being said, nor skilled at reading what’s NOT being said, we are most likely missing important information and cues.Listening challenges regularly cause needless mistakes often requiring rework, missed deadlines, or worse, missed opportunities.
