- Getting people to listen is a common challenge
- It's easy to blame the non-listener, but the problem may rest w/you!
People won't listen if...
- You don't listen to them
- They think you're trying to change their mind
- They're angry with you
- They don't trust you
- Your tone is too aggressive
- You drone on and on
- You're preaching instead of informing (sharing information of value)
