An Active Listener Reaps the Benefits

“Who speaks sows; Who listens reaps.”

Argentine Proverb

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

An active listeners 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 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.

Hi Lou Ludwig - I haven't heard that term "active" listening in quite awhile.  Active listening is a skill that requires listening checks for understanding, being empathetic. It also is a great skill to have for conflict resolution. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this highly desirable skill.

Good morning, Lou...it all goes back to that old expression "there's a reason God gave us two ears and one mouth." Good listening is an acquired skill.

If you truly listen to someone, they will tell you everything you need to know. Whether it is an interview, a problem solving conversation or just enjoying the conversation of being a friend.

Lou,

 If you do not truly listen then you cannot sell because how do you know what your buyer wants?

Hi Lou - Active Listening is a skill that more people need to learn.  Too many passively listen.
