QUICK ADVICE TO HOA PEOPLE ON “LISTENING”

This is a very short post. I harp all the time on the importance of active listening and learning people skills. I heard a good reminder today of one of Stephen Covey’s points in talking about successful people (and not so successful people). He said he trouble is that most people listen not to understand what the other person is saying, but merely to formulate a response.

Are you guilty of listening only to form a response? You will know that you are if you can’t wait to spout your answer when someone is talking to you and especially if you cut off the other person before they are finished.

I have been a condo-homeowners association attorney for more than 24 years. I like helping people get their arms around their homeowner association problems and find a solution. A balanced attitude can go further to resolve issues than just about anything else.
