The Importance of Listening
In a paper, reflect on a situation in your professional or personal life where poor listening skills created a problem. Briefly describe the situation, then spend the bulk of your reflection analyzing what went wrong in terms of listening and how, specifically, effective listening would have made a difference. Be sure you incorporate terms from the text of effective listening skills as you analyze the situation and suggest ways it could have been improved. Your paper should cite specific examples and provide detailed analysis incorporation reading and textbook material. If outside sources are used, proper citation of the source should be included.
