21 Habits to Better Listen to Yourself, Each Other, and the World
I have read many books regarding communication skills and listening. Now Listen may be the most practical approach to enhancing listening skills that I have ever read. Although intended as a business book for those in leadership positions, this book is destined to appeal to a much broader audience. I highly recommend it for those working in healthcare, for coaches and counsellors, and for couples, families and friends. The listening tips are universally applicable to anyone who wants to enhance their ability to listen both inward and outward. The spiritual and personal nature of the read, based on the author’s personal journey, grounds this work in an extraordinary way. Now Listen is so much more than a business book.
