Modern Talking- Who Will Save The World
How you talk to your child changes their brain
Apparently, only about 10 percent of us listen effectively. At JotForm , we have employees and 4. Listening has proven invaluable to our growth. Indeed, listening to our customers brought us 1 million new users last year alone. Given that humans have an average eight-second attention span , it can be challenging, but good listening is worth every bit of the effort. And the true listener is much more believed, magnetic than the talker, and he is more effective and learns more and does more good.

How much talking do you do on an average day, and how much listening? I mean real listening , where you focus on what the other person is saying and take it in, instead of planning the brilliant thing you'll say the moment the other person finishes speaking? If you're like most of us, the answer is: Not enough. Most people tend to treat conversation like a competitive sport, in which the person who says the most, makes the cleverest point, persuades others of an opinion, or even speaks the longest and loudest is the winner. All of us fall into this trap. All of us find ourselves interrupting, speechifying, insisting, and coming up with witticisms--all to support our point of view or display our superior knowledge. If you stop and think about it, though, this approach is the opposite of the one we should take.
