Studies on listening have show that we spend 60% of our communication time listening and that the average person can only remember 10% of that 3 days later.
For a skill that we need to use so often and neglect so heavily, you’d think that listening was pretty useless. But this couldn’t be further from the truth because every one of us needs to learn how to become a better listener.
