We can all recall situations where we have utterly failed to listen to what someone else was saying. For a variety of reasons, we are simply not taking in anything useful. How many times have you been introduced to a person by name, to simply forget what their name is thirty seconds later?

Yep, me too!

The reason this happens is because you have failed to actively listen.

Active listening is the art of listening for meaning.

Active listening requires the listener to understand, interpret, and evaluate what they are being told. Without this, communication is nothing but a façade.

There are many reasons why people fail to listen properly. They may be distracted by an activity they are attempting whilst listening, or by other thoughts in their head they deem to be more important, or they might be thinking about what they are going to say next, which is a common flaw in communication between parties whose opinions differ.

Active listening requires concentration and a genuine willingness to hear what is being said.

If you have been listening so far, this probably rings true for you.
