Motivational Power Quote

 

Listen With Your Eyes  

"Small is the number of people we see with their eyes

And think with their minds."

Albert Einstein  

    

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Listen with your eyes 

The person that gathers the most information in a conversation is in control of the communication. 93%of all communication is non-verbal the person who listens with their eyes receives far more information then a person who is listening with only their ears.   

Listening with you eyes takes patience and practice. Most people are so anxious to speak they don't pay attention to what's being said and even less attention to the no-verbal signals the person is sending.  

Proactively listen to the other person by engaging them in the conversation. By listening to them about 80% of the time and speaking with them with a purpose and asking question about 20% of the time we will gain useful inforamtion. Proactive listening will open up the flow of communications and relax the person that you're communicating with.     

As they relax their non-verbal communications will open up as well.  

If you listen with your eyes their non-verbal communications will give you an insight to their real thoughts what they are trying to commutate.       

Once you learn to listen with your eyes your commutations will go to a higher level of understanding and will become far more effective.

This is an interesting concepts - as much as 'see it from your ears'. Make sure we pay attention to all the details - and see the body language to understand what the client is up to...
