The Behavioral Minute: The Secret to Listening

Behavior is all around us: the good and the bad.  Yet so often the actions and reactions of others go by without thought. In support of our quest to bring the science of behavior to the masses, ADI is now launching a video series titled Behavioral Minute. In these short video segments, ADI experts will address a variety of topics related to behavior in the workplace and at home, and include tips for how you can be more effective and successful.

Most managers in organizations today are good at talking and telling but listening is in short supply. The ability to listen to others is more important than most people realize. When you listen, others have the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas. And you have the opportunity to choose what you respond and give attention to, shaping the behavior of the other person. If you spend more time listening and less time talking you can achieve higher levels of engagement and experience better interpersonal relationships. Watch as Aubrey Daniels shares more on why listening is so valuable in our latest Behavioral Minute video. Stay connected to new Behavioral Minute segments by visiting ADI’s YouTube Channel or our media center.
