Read about why active listening is so important in your mentoring relationship from Management Mentors
Active listening takes energy. People who listen actively don’t simply sit back and allow words to hit their eardrums. They sit up straight. They take notes. They ask questions. They repeat or “mirror back” what they’ve heard to ensure they’ve understood it properly.
