Let’s see . . .
Do you avoid looking down at your iPhone?
Or your Apple watch when it buzzes?
Do you turn off what you want to say next and just pay attention?
Do you wait for your turn to talk or do you cut people off?
Are you curious?
Do you remain interested when you find the other person boring?
Do you bite your tongue when you feel the urge to brag?
Do you listen just to get something in return?
Few things build stronger connections with people than listening.
As connections deepen people feel more comfortable opening up.
Listen because you’re curious.
Not because you want to build trust so you can progress a sale.
You can never listen too much.
