We all seem to be in a rush these days& our society is dreadfully time-starved; courtesy and listening skills seem to have dissipated into the abyss. We all want people to hear what we are saying; therefore, we should always make sure we are genuinely listening. Be attentive to the speaker give them your complete attention. Despite all the important things that are pressing in your realm, allow the speaker your undivided attention. Never treat a person as a burden, be charitable in your judgments. At all times we should keep good eye-contact, nodding in agreement, conversing with the individual and asking leading questions. It can add to a beneficial communication experience that can enhance a positive relationship.
