I think being a good listener helps me in many ways. There are many benefits to being a good listener and I really think it helps me deal better with people. If I listen carefully to what they are saying I'm more likely to understand what they need or want. I think that it is very valueable when it comes to good leadership skills. Like you said other techniques can be helpful as well.

Thanks for the response...You have added that it helps to deal people in a better way..and helps understand people's expectations from us..but i also want to know what we really must listen..like many times people dont say things straightly.so you need to be clever enough to know their inner intentions..and tat is what seems hard to me..wat do u think about this
