Do You Listen, Or Just Wait Your Turn To Speak?
Effective conversations require you to truly listen to what the other person is saying. There's a difference between listening and simply waiting your turn to speak. Experience that difference.
Listening is a skill that can be improved. Practice. Practice. Practice!
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Synergize Color: Speak Clearly -- Listen Carefully -- Confirm Messages.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- How do you know when you're really listening and when you're not?
- Did you miss something someone said today, because you weren't paying attention?
- How can you actively demonstrate today that you hear what's being said?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Synergize Factor 7J? (Speak Clearly -- Listen Carefully -- Confirm Messages.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (7J rated 8 or better) suggests you communicate clearly and always clarify what others want from you. It's partially a personality trait and it's partially the skill you apply to get things right. You gain greater insight each time you speak with others. You're committed to not only hearing what others have to say, but more importantly, understanding them. When you offer ideas to others, you double-check to make sure they truly understood what you think you said -- and that what they think is actually what you mean!
A lack of commitment suggests you are often mistaken about what others are saying -- simply because you fail to communicate your thoughts clearly. Many of your relationships are filled with frustration and confusion. Misunderstanding results from failing to confirm and clarify incoming and outgoing messages. This results in bad feelings, mistakes and time lost. You are absolutely certain no one speaks "Plain English" any more -- and what people hear, is not even close to what you say!
What happens when you do TQ Factor 7J more frequently?
You have more power. Your skill at listening attentively, and speaking clearly, helps you reach a mutual understanding for how you can help each other.
You accumulate performance positives like "Articulate, Exacting and Observant" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 7J?
You have less power. You frequently make critical mistakes, because you have no idea what the other person is actually thinking.
Negatives like "Confusing, Imprecise and Misunderstood" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
