Hi, it's Tina and I'm here with your One Minute Management Tip.

You know, one of the most important skills we can learn in our private life and especially at work, is the ability to be able to actively listen to those who are speaking to us. And what does that mean that we have to do? Oh, we've got to shut off all the noise that's going on in our head in order for us to be able to listen to what's coming out of their mouths so that we can understand. We need to seek that understanding. But what is happening so often? Well, that means we're usually thinking about what we're going to say while they're still talking.

So how could we possibly be listening to them? People really appreciate it when someone does listen. And if you belong to the Virtual Practice Management Institute, we have a module in their called, "Can You Hear Me Now?" And it's all about how to communicate effectively, not only speaking, but most importantly listening. And we have to be able to actively listen to those who speak to us.

Well, if you have any questions, I'd be glad to answer them. Just give me a shout out at [email protected] or Dr. Peter Wishnie at [email protected]. And I hope you really take some time to listen to those who are speaking to you. They will really appreciate it. See you later. Bye.
