How to Be a Good Listener in a Relationship
Being a good listener is something that I have had a problem with in the past.
Here is an example. Have you ever had this happen…?
Your wife will be talking to you, and all of a sudden you’re zoning out and doing something else and then she gets to an important part of the conversation where she asks you a question. Then you reply, “Oh! Wait, wait, what did you say?”
From experience, I can tell you that this is NOT how to be a good listener in a relationship.
One of the best things that I took from the book, How to Win Friends and Influence People; is it to be a good listener by encouraging others to talk about themselves. This technique makes people feel better when you’re actually listening and you’re engaged with what they have to say.
That is tip number one on how to be a good listener in a relationship.
Let’s say you are on a conference call. Sometimes I will be on a conference call while I am doing other things and I will miss completely everything in that message that they said. Today, for example, on the morning mindset call. I was walking around, I was eating, I was doing things. I honestly don’t remember anything from the morning mindset call. This is rare for me because usually I’m listening intently. Today, though, I wasn’t really listening very well and I don’t really remember anything. I can listen to the replay later, which is cool, but there is a lesson in this.
How to Be a Good Listener in a Relationship
If you are going through training, or you’re listening to a mentor, be sure to be a good listener and actually be engaged with what you’re listening to so that you can learn that knowledge or apply that technique.
That is tip number two on how to be a good listener in a relationship.
Make sure you are listening to your spouse.
If you are someone that talks on the phone with prospects, listen to them and ask them questions; engage them instead of sitting there just pounding, pounding, pounding telling them what you want them to hear. When you ask a question and you’re ready with the next question right when they get done with their answer without even actually listening to them… I’ve seen people do that and it turns people off when you do that!
You have to be engaged with the person who is speaking. When you are on the phone, be engaged with whomever you are talking with. Apply this ‘how to be a good listener in a relationship’ principle when you communicate with your spouse and you will have a happier marriage.
You can apply this principle to anything in your life. If you need more information on this, read the book How to Win Friends and Influence People. The principle is, “Be a good listener. Encourage others to talk about themselves.”
I will expound on this principle further and add be a good listener on conference calls and when you are learning. Be a good, engaged listener so that you can actually take that information and use it.
When you listen to your spouse or your prospect, you find out what they need. You will know how to respond in a in a good way, and that’s going to make them happy.
You will have a happier marriage. Prospects will want to join you in business. You will retain information better.
When you go through information, you only retain about five percent of the message. I believe it is because we’re so ADD and we’re not really listening.
