24 Traits of a Good Listener

25 Process of listening

26 Process of listening 2. Understanding 1. Receiving 3. Remembering
4. Evaluating 5. Responding 1. Receiving

27 Receiving 1. It refers to the response caused by sound waves stimulating the sensory receptors of the ear; it is physical response. Understanding 2. It is the stage at which you learn what the speaker means “the thoughts and emotional tone”.

28 3. Remembering It is important listening process because it means that an individual added message to the mind's storage bank. 4. Evaluating It consists of judging the messages in some way.

29 5. Responding This stage requires that the receiver complete the process through verbal and/or nonverbal feedback; because the speaker has no other way to determine if a message has been received. This stage becomes the only overt means by which the sender may determine the degree of success in transmitting the message.

30 Techniques of Listening Skills:
Focus on key-points Being aware of both verbal and non-verbal messages. Listen with an open mind Avoid false attention and pretending to listen. Wait for the speaker to pause to ask clarifying questions.

31 Attempt to find a connection to or personal interest in the speaker’s topic
Be attentive, but relaxed Stop trying to jump in and talk” avoid interaction” Take time to listen to yourself

32 Face the speaker and maintain eye contact
Try to feel what the speaker is feeling. Give the speaker regular feedback. Respect right to share

33 Tips for effective listening
It is estimated that we use only about 25 percent of our listening capacity. Here are three tips to help you increase your ability to listen by 50 percent: - Look at the speaker (benefit = 15 percent) - Ask questions (benefit = 15 percent) - Take notes (benefit = 20 percent) Finally, “If we were supposed to talk more than listen, we would have been given two mouths and one ear.”

34 Do not jump to conclusions about what you see and hear
Do not jump to conclusions about what you see and hear. You should always seek clarification to ensure that your understanding is correct.
