Hearing and focusing on the speaker are both necessary components of listening. Hearing and successful listening, however, are two quite different skills. To improve your listening skills, take into account the following advice:

• Clear your mind to avoid mental wanderings. Your inner dialogue, deciding what to say, reacting to what the other person has said, and other issues that may be on your mind can prevent you from actively listening to what the other person is saying there is.

• Pay attention to what the speaker is saying. Give the other person your undivided attention and pay close attention to what they are saying. Consider this a chance to discover more about the other person.

• Do not interrupt while they’re speaking. Ask them to speak without pausing until they get the point.

• Encourage the other person to speak by using body language to show interest and attention.

•Ask questions about what the other person said. This shows what you heard and ensures that your understanding is correct. At the end of the conversation, you can also summarize the discussion.

• Pay close attention to the speaker’s body language and vocal intonation for nonverbal cues. This may provide hints as to the other person’s thoughts, feelings, and reaction to what you are saying.

• Respond constructively. Let the other person know that you care about what they say, even if you disagree. Avoid negative reactions such as criticism, ridicule, distraction, distraction, or denying the other person or what they are saying.

• React in a suitable manner. Make sure you comprehend what the other person is asking of you so that you can react appropriately. Ask for explanation if you are unclear about what the other person wants. Unless the person directly seeks it from you, try to avoid offering unwelcome diagnoses, advise, or guidance.
