It is regrettable that the art of listening has become an undervalued and forgotten art. We
clamor to be heard and to receive attention. We forgot that listening too is an important
component to be an effective communicator. We must understand that communication is the
key to every successful relationship. And the best way to understand a person is by listening.

and does better things in life. Good listeners do not suffer from loneliness and they have a
positive energy that makes you want their company. They effective in their work as they know

listening. We must acknowledge by a simple nod of the head, make a conscious effort not to let
