Instructor: Amanda Robb
Here, you'll get the opportunity to use a checklist to look for important listening skills in your own practice. After discussing why these skills are so important, you'll be able to quiz yourself with a quick checklist of listening skills.

Why Is Listening Important?

As a supervisor, it's important to make your employees feel like part of a team. As the boss, it might feel natural to give directions and tell your employees what to do, but it's just as important to be an effective listener. Listening and truly hearing your employees helps them feel valued and increases efficiency and engagement.

But what skills do you need to be a good listener? Today, we're going to go over a checklist of critical skills for supervisors to develop their listening skills as explained in the lesson Becoming a Better Listener: Tips & Strategies.
