QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
Being a Good Listener
September 29-October 5, 2014
Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker, the lawyer has superior opportunity of being… good “people”. There will still be business enough.
Here are a few examples:
I really listen. I do not form an opinion or start to respond until the person is finished talking.
I show interest by asking questions.
I demonstrate understanding by repeating what the person says.
I am quick to give… “a colleague, co-worker, learner” credit and recognition for new ideas and input.
I follow up with the… “a colleague, co-worker, learner” about our conversation and what will happen next.
