The Art Of Listening...

Truly Listening takes time, requires patience, and must flow from a true desire to fully hear what is being conveyed.

Original content by Maria Sapio RS334568

The other day I was painting a piece of furniture.  I was down on the floor with my paint brush in hand looking at the piece from every angle to be sure I had
painted each nook and cranny.  


As I was laying there twisted like a pretzel, I wondered 
..."How often do I simply look at a particular piece of information from only one angle and miss so much more...??"


Real Estate is a listening business...


Yet does listening go beyond the simplicity of paying attention...??


I think good listening -

-Starts with the ability to be quiet 
-Hear the words and voice inflection 
-Repeat and sum up what was heard
-Await further clarification
-Ask intentional, thought provoking questions that lead to further depth of understanding

To Sum Up: Be Quiet/Hear/Sum Up/Await/Ask

Truly Listening takes time, requires patience, and must flow from a true desire to fully hear what is being conveyed.

Perhaps listening is one of the greatest gifts we can offer to each other...

Some of us need to do some work on our listening skills. A good personal goal for the new year.
