This course looks into the skill less used: listening and understanding others. Most of us believe that we listen but in effect what we do is that we hear. Listening involves more than hearing. It involves understanding why the other person said what he said and the feeling behind the words. Listening is a skill that, if done consistently and in the right way, improves relationships and trust. Misunderstandings happen because we assume instead of truly listening; Lack of development also happens as a result of not asking questions in order to help the other person gain clarity.
