About the skills:

Whatever is being said around you should have a special focus on it. It is not only about listening those words but something even more than that. This probably involves effort of speaker’s messages.

  1. Make a contact through eyes: It feels quite weirdo when you are speaking and no one looks at you. If you are similar to others in interpreting the behavior of other then this is your disinterest. Focus can easily be improved by looking through others eyes while having a conversation and this will save you from distraction.
  2. Exhibit different behavior and also facial based expression: If you are an effective listener then also you will show interest when non verbal form of communication is going through. A good eye connection and face expressions are suitable for better communication establishment.
  3. Avoid actions that are distracting: Along with showing your interest you should also be able to avoid an action that pretends you of being non listener. While listening to someone avoid looking through your watch, papers, pencils, etc. This will make the speakers feel bad and feel like being distracted.
  4. Try asking questions: A critical listener is one who is great at listening and questioning. This behavior is worth of clarification, understanding, and assuring about the listeners and the speakers.
  5. Understand the paraphrase: An effective listener is one who uses phrases like “what I would hear is that you say”, “did you mean this..?” etc. Thus paraphrasing is also effective way of understanding and checking whether you are in a proper condition of listening al things accurately.
  6. Avoid any interruption for the speaker: Always allows speaker to tell whatever they are saying without any interruptions. Never guess where the speaker is trying to go through their thoughts.
  7. Stay always motivated: It has been a habit that most of the people try to express their own thoughts rather than listening others. For them talking become interesting rather than being silent. But a good listener is one who recognizes this.
