Listen more and talk less

By Diego Nascimento

There are people who say what they think.  Be careful:  This characteristic can be treacherous in various areas of daily life, especially in the workplace.  I know:  You’re remembering something right now, right?  Words in excess can harm a good relationship. Try to listen more and think two, three or four times before commenting and giving one of “those” responses.  The way you speak can demonstrate wisdom or disrespect, whether it is with your superior, with your colleague on the right or the left or with your customers.  Steven p. Cohen, president of The Negotiation Skills Company, says that “rapid responses can bring about long-term consequences.” Watch how youconduct your conversations within the workplace as well as outside and moderate your conversations with respect and humility. Every tree begins from a small seed. Listen more and talk less.


So, what do you think ?
