Listening carefully before speaking clearly

There are some actions we undertake automatically, listening carefully before speaking clearly is unfortunately not always one of these if we consider the amount of poor communication swirling around us nowadays.

Listening carefully before speaking clearly offers many benefits, including:

a) a demonstration of respect for those engaged in the exchange;

b) certainty regarding the subject of the matter under discussion;

c) the opportunity for learning to occur;

d) a reduction in the need to repeat messages, details, instructions and the like.
