No one wants to be known as a bad listener. No one wants to forget an entire side of a conversation and have to ask someone to repeat. Everyone wants to be a good listener.

Today I’m going to share 7 reasons why you might be a bad listener and 7 ways to fix that. All of these are from experience. Trust me, I am a recovering bad listener. It’s something I struggle with every single day.
But I am getting better. Here’s what I’ve learned and how you, too, can be a better listener.
