How to listen — Best tip ever
from Leadership Freak
If you think listening is easy, you aren't doing it. Listening is hard because some people can't stop talking. Perhaps a talk-timer would help, like a chess timer with a slap-button on the top. You have one minute to talk. When you're done you slap the timer to assign your partner one minute. But a talk-timer wouldn't help. All you would do is wait for their minute to expire so you could say the really important stuff.
