Quiz: How good are your listening skills?


It’s estimated that the average person spends up to half their life listening. But that doesn’t mean we really hear what’s going on. Research shared by Forbes suggests that when someone has finished talking, we only remember 50% of what they said. Other studies suggest even less. That’s a lot of potentially valuable information we miss out on…

However, listening is a skill we can learn and master, giving us the potential to stand out above the average as leaders and managers. This is essential in the creation of workplaces that support positive mental health and support employees in reaching their full potential. It also makes it possible to enjoy deeper and more rewarding relationships with those we love, giving our personal lives more meaning too.

Take our quiz to find out how you rate as a listener and what you can do to improve your ability to tune in when it counts.
