An Active Listener . . . . Reaps the Benefits

“Who speaks sows; Who listens reaps.”

Argentine Proverb

 

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

An active listener . . . . reaps the benefits

 

Active Listening Skills . . . . Builds Rapport

 

Active listening engages the other person in the conversation . . . . and in the communications. As you engage the other person by activity listening to them you create the foundation of building rapport.

 

An Active Listener Reaps . . . . the Benefits of Rapport

 

When you are activity listening to a person you are showing them . . . . respect by listening to them. As a result you are building a common bond of rapport and trust. 

 

An Active Listener . . . . Reaps the Benefits of Trust

 

Strong business relationships are built on the foundation of rapport and trust. In a business relationship that lacks rapport and trust . . . . the business relationship comes to a stalemate. In almost all of those relationships they will end . . . . with no business being successful being completed between the parties. And the relationship . . . . turns into missed opportunities.

 

An Active Listener . . . . Reaps the Harvest of Information

 

Build your relationships on a solid foundation of rapport . . . . and you will create the bridge of trust . . . . and a solid business relationship. In that relationship, the information will flow freely.

 

An Active Listener . . . . Reaps the Harvest of Building Bridges to Success

 

Active listening skills will build rapport . . . . and leads to a successful long term relationships. With the strength of your relationship becomes a resource on your success journey . . . . leading to opening the doors to new and higher levels of success.

 

An active listener . . . . reaps the benefits . . . . of being an effective communicator.
