LISTENING INCREASES KNOWLEDGE
The author, John Maxwell quoted Wilson Mizner's saying, "A good listener is not only popular everywhere, but after a while he knows something."

It is amazing how much you can learn about your friends and family, your job, the organization you work in, and yourself when you decide to really listen to others.

Only if you develop good listening skills early, and you continue to use them, will you be able to gather the information you need to succeed.

John Maxwell explained that fresh, innovative ideas help us to find new ways to solve old problems, generate new products and processes to keep our organizations growing, and improving personally.

Know how to listen, and you will profit even from those who talk badly.
