Q. How can I improve my listening skills?
A. This is a question I’ve often asked myself and continue to improve each day. Here are three things I try to do to improve my listening. 1) I focus on the person who is talking, avoiding any distractions and maintain eye contact with the person talking; 2) I try and make it a mental game by asking myself what the key points are the person is trying to make; and 3) Practice each day with everyone you communicate with until it because a habit to listen and not speak until the other person has finished.
