Listening Techniques For More Effective Meetings, Part I

Written by V. Berba Velasco Jr., Ph.D.

We all know what it’s like when a meeting doesn’t go smoothly. Discussions get derailed, tempers start to fray, and things are seldom resolved to everyone’s satisfaction. In such situation,repparttar problem is oftenrepparttar 151020 result of poor communication—and poor communication is frequently caused by poor listening.

Fortunately, there are some simple techniques which can be used to mitigate this problem. The most basic of these is called “active listening.” Now, I know what you’re thinking; this sounds like some goofy technique that simply statesrepparttar 151021 obvious and wastes one’s time. The problem, however, is that most people consider themselves to be good listeners, but very few actually are.

An active listener does three important things:

First, he looks and sounds interested inrepparttar 151022 speaker. This requires looking directly atrepparttar 151023 speaker, maintaining eye contact if possible. By doing so, we letrepparttar 151024 speakers know that we are genuinely interested in what they have to say. (Admittedly, in many Western cultures, too much eye contact can makerepparttar 151025 speaker feel self-conscious. The key is to strike a balance, givingrepparttar 151026 speaker enough attention to convey understanding and interest.) It also helps to use vocalizations such as "uh-huh" and "yes" to encouragerepparttar 151027 speakers to continue.

Second, an active listener strives to adoptrepparttar 151028 speaker's viewpoint. Try to see things from her point of view—especially if you find yourself disagreeing! Avoid interrupting or finishing that person’s sentences. Even if you disagree, try to suppress your initial reactions and respond fromrepparttar 151029 speaker's frame of reference, not your own. Expressing dissent too quickly can be disastrous, if one has not properly understood a colleague’s point of view. Of course, it may be necessary to express disagreement—perhaps even strong contention—but one shouldn't do that without thoroughly understandingrepparttar 151030 speaker's point of view.
