7 Deadly Sins of Bad Listeners

Standard

Do you do these?

1. Prejudging what the speaker is about to say
2. Silently bashing delivery or appearance.
3. Thinking about what to say next
4. Interrupting the speaker
5. Giving in to distractions
6. Finishing the speaker’s thoughts
7. Tuning out.

What is your listening sin?

Taken from Sam Harrison’s book, called Idea Spotting.
