How good are you at listening? Do you really hear someone when they speak? Not so much the words, but what they are saying. Do you give advice before they ask for it? Do you tell them a “better one” than what they told you? Do you listen…really listen? Are you able to keep the focus on them…or does it stay on self?
Questions we should all ask of ourselves. Listening to someone is a skill few acquire. Nurses are supposed to excel at listening, but oh so often, they don’t. Listening…a good skill to study on…a good skill to practice.
