Bad listener is bad for business. Sometimes people may not look into your eyes when they talk, or even ask the same question twice. That’s bad as it makes you feel they are not interested in what you say. How do we become a better listener?
Let me give you some tips beyond the simple ‘ How are you ’ to show that you are interested in someone. Phrases like ‘tell me’ is helpful. For instance you could say things like ‘Tell me about your weekend’ or ‘Tell me how did two of you meet?’. This is simple yet it lets people know you’re tuned in or could even lead to a more interesting chat.
To build trust with people, you have to show interest in them. Thus it’s important for you to know how to launch a scintillating conversation.
