Quote of the Day: Ludwig Hess

by Dec 17, 2018

A good listener is totally focused on the speaker with an open mind.

 

– Ludwig Hess

Whether you are the CEO of an organization or a new trainee tasked on your first team assignment, exercising good listening skills are critical to success. To listen well, as Ludwig Hess observes, the listener should be ” totally focused on the speaker with an open mind.”  Doing so allows you to see matters from another perspective and reflect while at the same time showing your colleague respect. Even if you are at odds with the speaker, by listening effectively you can strengthen your own views and locate areas to commonality.
