    Listen With Intent

      You hear but do you listen?   Stephen Covey Wrote “Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” I truly never understood that until I had an interaction with an individual that taught me there is more to conversation than just hearing.

So there are the typical things that are a must do, but there is so much that is overlooked if you aren’t a local.
