Two ears and one mouth:10 reasons you should learn to listen.

One of the biggest challenges we face today is the willingness and discipline to close our mouths and open our ears.The art of listening demonstrates the heart of leadership because:

  • It is more important to understand than to be understood.
  • When caution precedes words,advice is not loosely given.
  • Listening intently shows control over impulse.
  • One is not enticed by worthless words but hears the truth in the conversation.
  • Silence on the front end leaves channels of communication open on the back-end.
  • One can never learn while talking,but the student of life is anxious to hear.
  • Verbal domination does not demonstrate true power.
  • To be in love with sound of ones own voice demonstrates a selfish attitude.
  • The more one talks the less others want to listen.
  • Every conversation does not need your input..

Someone once said,the reason we all have two ears and one mouth is so we listen more and talk less…
