  1. Not interrupting the person as they speak.
    Not coming up with an answer before they’ve finished speaking.
    Taking a breathe before you speak!

  2. One thing that I can do is Actively Listen. For example, when I’m at work and a co-worker stops by my desk to speak to me, sometimes I continue working, instead of taking the time to stop what I’m doing and actively engage them by giving them my undivided attention. That’s important. It tells them that they’re important too.

    Great post. Thanks for Sharing.

    • I’m glad you like it. This is one of my favorite poems about listening.

      Another favorite is the poem that begins with:

      When I ask you to listen to me
      And you start giving me advice,
      You have not done what I’ve asked…
