Publisher's Summary

What did you say? Can you repeat that? Do you understand? Are you listening to me?

The one skill we use everyday, in every interaction, with people and the world around us, is listening. It is the foundation of all effective communication. And we can all improve upon our listening skills.

We tend to take listening for granted. Because it just happens automatically. Without any effort. But effortless listening is not real listening. Listening is both an art and a science. In order to become a phenomenal listener, you must study listening and you must practice listening.

Why should you care to be a phenomenal listener?

Phenomenal listeners are admired because they make people feel like they are understood. Phenomenal listeners connect with people. They make people feel like they are important. As a result, phenomenal listeners have more friends, are admired, perform better at work, and get better grades in school. Listening makes all aspects of our lives better.

Be a Phenomenal Listener takes you through the entire listening process. First it defines for you the different types of listening, so you can know which type of listening to use depending on your situation. Next, the audiobook goes over why listing is so important, and how great listening skills can make every part of your life better. The primary part of the book then discusses how to be a phenomenal listener, giving you specific tips and tactics to use to improve your listening. From emotions to feel in the middle of a conversation to using body language, the listener gains actionable information across all aspects of listening. Next, the book goes over possible hindrances to listening, and why you may not be listening well. This is to help you identify and fix behaviors that are preventing you from being a phenomenal listener. The book concludes with strategies on how to put yourself in the right frame of mind to be a great listener.
