Listening Skills

    your communication skills.
  • Active listening involves giving your full
    attention to whatever the speaker is saying
    without interrupting or making judgments.

Effective Communication
Nonverbal Communication
  • You use body language when you nod or shake your
    head to show that you agree or disagree with
    something that is said.
  • When you hold yourself in a tense posture, you
    silently communicate that youre feeling nervous
    or worried.
  • Nonverbal communication can be subtle, taking
    place at an unconscious level.
  • If your words and your body language seem to
    contradict each other, the person you are
    speaking to may be confused or unsure of what to
    believe.

Eliminating Communication Barriers
Prejudice
  • Prejudice prevents a person from having an open
    mind and listening to new information.
  • To avoid developing prejudices, you can
    demonstrate tolerance.
  • Being tolerant helps you understand the
    differences among people and recognize the value
    of diversity.
