The Business of Listening

It Pays to Listen

Over 35 recent business studies confirm that good listening is one of the top skills needed for success in business.

Listening is a learnable skill

Listening has almost become a lost art. Nevertheless, it is a learnable skill. For the people in your organization, it might be their most important business skill.

Effective listeners outperform less effective listeners

Leaders, who are attentive and authentic listeners, get the best performance from their people and retain those people longer. In sales, effective listeners build stronger relationships that translate into more sales. Effective listeners generate fewer customer complaints, and instill greater customer loyalty.

Good listeners simply make for better employees.
