“Great salespeople don’t listen in order to anything. They simply listen. They listen because they are interested in the other person; they are curious. They want to know the person. They listen to learn.” — Bob Burg
Melissa’s Words of Wisdom
Not too long ago I was in a class where the instructor taught us how to pretend to be interested in someone else. I was flabbergasted!! I couldn’t believe this instructor actually thought to share this in the class! I mean, I see the value in teaching listening skills and such, but to teach how to be fake about it was over the top. I invite you to throw away any and all pretending and to be a genuine and authentic listener! Be genuinely curious about people in general; ask quality questions and get to know them. People are fascinating creatures! You’ll find that out real quick if you take the time to be genuinely interested in people. Happy Being an Authentic Listener!
