What is your listening strategy? Tell us!


Narendra Modi, by all accounts, is a fantastic listener.

The prime minister listens intently to all points presented at meetings before he takes a measured decision.

What is your listening strategy?

  • Do you make your point forcefully at meetings to highlight your presence, enjoying the music of your own voice and ignoring what others have to say?
  • Or do you choose to listen very carefully to everything that is being said at meetings, only speaking up when called to?
  • How important is listening at meetings in your opinion?
  • Do you think it is really useful?
  • Or do you think it is pointless to listen to meaningless speeches being made by colleagues, preferring to play with your smartphone instead?

Tell us what your listening strategy is.

In 3 or 5 easy-to-understand points. You could help other readers learn how listening can help them get ahead in their careers.
