Importance of listening skillsBY: Muhammed Haris | Category: Self Improvement | Post Date: 2009-07-25
Listening skills have not been given much importance like other aspects of communication skills, but it is true that listening skills play a major role in the success of one's communication skills. Only a good listener can be a good speaker. Nobody has been loaded or programmed with good speaking skills at the time of birth. A baby starts speaking, only by listening to the words spoken by his family members. So a child first learns to speak his mother tongue and then other languages like English, Spanish, French etc. But the curiosity found in a baby to learn the language does not last very long as he starts to grow up. Slowly a child develops an ego by thinking that he is a good speaker and thet he should speak and others should listen to him.
Unless one has been restricted to speak, people do not break their speech. In general people do not even mind interrupting in the middle when somebody else is speaking. So only we have the etiquettes defined for the official meetings. It is a shameful thing that an etiquettes list has to contain a cause for saying. Only one person should speak at a time, it is common sense that if two or more people speak at a time, the listeners cannot grasp anybody's words. But still the clause "Only one person should speak at a time" has been required to be mentioned even at the meetings of high profiled professionals.
Animals have a tendency of crying together, they have the purpose in it. Because they want to make a loud noise either to grab attention or to pass a message. But human beings make such noise without any purpose. So, human being making such noises can be compared with the animals. Animals stand a level up. Common sense has been defined as a sense which is not common amongst the common people. So the listening skill has been one amongst such common senses. So only the conscious effort to possess good listening skill would make a good listener.
