How would you rate the "listening" portion of your professional skills? Poor? OK? Awesome?
If you didn't say "awesome", we can help. It's not enough to passively listen in a conversation- you need to
listen actively!

When you become a better active listener, you improve your relationship building activities and professional communication skills overall. In today's SlideShare, we take you through 5 traits exhibited by first rate listeners that you can make your own. professional-skills-active-listening


At the end of the slides, you'll be able to:

1. Focus more clearly on a speaker.

2. Demonstrate to a conversation partner that you are engaged with their thoughts.

3. Communicate your own thoughts in a conversation by building on the speakers message.


Try it out, and then let us know your thoughts! We're listening.
