Listening – Tool for Communication

Let us explore what LISTENING really means and observe how we use this tool in our communication.
“Listening “ is a great tool in communication, which impacts its effectiveness in profound manner .In arguments we often experience that the other person involved in communication is not listening to us , and we make our way through either by complaining that he is not listening and getting furious on it or making abrupt ending to the communication to avoid any further arguments . And in both the cases communication remains incomplete. Because the very essence of communication and existence of communication is not fulfilled .
Let us observe the true meaning of communication :
Meaning as mentioned in WiKipedia — Communication (from Latin comm?nic?re, meaning “to share”[1]) is the act of conveying intended meanings from one entity or group to another through the use of mutually understood signs and semiotic rules.
And there is more to it- for efficient communication ,it means to communicate the intended ideas information or emotion in such a manner that the other person gets the intention , emotion and the information with minimum distortion and other persons communication is also received with minimum distortion . The less the distortion the more effective the communication is. So in order to receive or send communication with minimum distortion we need to have more ease , more space and less friction in our communication .
And listening is the tool that creates more space and less friction at the receiving end of the communication , where communication could then land with minimum distortion and perceived by recipient more effectively .
