It’s always a variation of the same story: “We don’t communicate.” “We talk, but we don’t hear each other.” At a time in which we are communicating more rapidly than ever-via texts, tweets, and one email volley after the next-it seems that there is hardly anyone among us who couldn’t use some tips to facilitate more active listening for their in-person interaction.
