Publisher's Summary

Most people typically listen with the intent to reply. Habit 5 explores the essential communication skill of listening to truly understand, which helps us to avoid reading our own autobiographies into other people's lives. It opens us up to one another's perspectives, ideas, and emotions. Then real communication can happen, new and better ideas can be conceived, and everyone involved can learn from one another.

    "Worth listening to"

    This habit is all about listening empathetic, while this skill is very powerful, but we need to be careful since some people may only want to use us to offload their insecurities and frustrations on us as if we are their counsellor or something like that.
