good listening

Follow these rules. Really learn and be aware of them and this technique will make you one of the most admired people in your world.

  1. Focus on the message and the speaker. Force yourself to pay attention to your customer and don’t let your mind wander.

  2. Listen: don’t fake it.

  3. Be especially conscious that you do not react emotionally when your customer uses emotionally charged words.

  4. Let your customer finish his/her comments without interrupting him.
