Listening Quotes

Effective communication is not only about speaking - listening is a key element too. And being an active and good listener is quite an acquired trait. And as proof of your listening abilities, you must be able to give feedback on whatever you’ve heard (everyone has opinions!) or else be able to explain, either in the same words or in your own, exactly what you heard. And this means thinking twice about what you heard before you decide to speak up. Confused already? Don't worry, read the following listening quotes to get more insights!
