body language

When you meet and speak with people do you listen ?

I mean really listen.

When you meet people what do you see ?

I mean really see.

Good communication is all about listening and looking . It’s not just about listening to what they are saying , it’s about really hearing where the emphasis is. When you look at them do you just stare at their face ? the wall ? or up in the air ?

You have to take in so much.
