Have you ever been asked a question only to have the listener’s eyes glaze over or have them look away as you are answering? How about the flip side? When you meet someone at a party or a networking event – do you really listen to what they are saying or are you guilty of non-listening too?
One of my former colleagues used to say; “we have one mouth and two ears so we should be listening at least twice as much as we talk. Yet, this rule doesn’t seem to apply to most people we communicate with. Why? Those of us who are really interested, and choose to listen actively, what are we missing? Smacking someone in the face and saying, “hey! I’m talking over here!” Probably isn’t a good alternative.
