There is something very interesting I noticed about this statement. And today I was more like experimenting with the idea.
I was in a meeting where they did a lot of talking from morning till night, which was quite interesting. What I did was to listen attentively ; What I realized is when I listened attentively without asking questions, they answered the questions on my mind. Or as they even went on with their speech, they explained a point that was not clear at the start.
Is it then ok, to let people to just talk and then listen – And not interrupt their speech with any questions but rather pay close attention to what they want to say, and after that, ask yourself the questions; did I get him, or I lost him completely?
