Good Listeners Stand Out

Education & Training with Ludwig & Associates

Motivational Power Quote


Good Listeners Stand Out   

“Without question, the art of listening is one of the most underestimated keys to success. I want you to stop and think about the friends and

you really enjoy being with, the bosses you you’ve enjoyed working for,

and I’d e willing to bet they all have one thing in common . . .

they’re good listeners.”

 Mac Anderson, Founder Simple Truth, Successories         


As I see it . . . . . . .

Good listeners stand out


Good listeners will inherit the earth and control the negotiating process. Oh well they may not inherit the earth but they will make a lot more money in their career as result of their listening skills.


A good listener will hear what others miss and gather a great deal of information by listening. They will also create lasting business relationships by listening and understanding their customers’ needs and by becoming the source to satisfy those needs.


As a result of your listening skills you will build rapport with the people you meet and create the foundation of a lasting business relationship. You will also be able to create a large sphere of influence to draw on for your future business and referrals.


Good listeners stand out in their profession simply by the fact that they listen. A good listener will do more business, create more referrals, make more money and become more successful.

It's very important to listen to know what to take in and what to leave out. :)

I had always professed to being a great listener, until I took a listening seminar many years ago, with my wife. At one point during the seminar, I was in tears. I made up my mind, right then and there, to become a committment to listening.

The art of listening, no matter how perfected, requires more practice! Enjoy your day!

Listening...a lesson we should have learned as a child. Speak when spoken to or at least speak when appropriate.

Agreed! Body language is also important to "listen" to.

Couldn't agree more. There are still too many realtors that do not understand this concept.
