The ability to communicate eloquently and effectively is a skill. However, relatively few of us are aware of this or actively work to hone this skill.
One of the crucial elements of communication is ‘listening.' Unless we are good listeners there is no way we can be effective communicators. However, the human mind is fickle and fleeting. Every 7 to 10 seconds, our minds wander, our listening skills degrade, and communication breaks down.
In this episode, Oscar Trimboli will tell us about the art of listening. So listen carefully!
