Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Charlie Rose, and Oprah Winfrey are examples of good listeners.
Good listeners are easy to recognize. They draw out ideas, dreams, and feelings creating value in the speaker. Good listeners transform lives.
Good listeners listen to themselves. They are incredibly aware of the words they use to make sure a clear meaning is communicated.
It takes focus and a desire to learn about the speaker.
Concentrate. Every word falling from the speaker's mouth is a story of their incredible life; nuggets of inspiration they are choosing to share with you.
Listen. Lead. Inspire.
