By Dr. Mimi Hull, Facilitator of MemberLink
Dr. Mimi Hull, Facilitator of MemberLinkSuccessful people know that good communication is not just about speaking. It's about the connection between the senders and the receivers, commonly called listening. When speakers at MemberLink are talking, I am amazed at how our members really listen. They listen with their ears, their eyes and even their hands, as they take notes. They realize that only if you listen effectively can you respond appropriately and ask really good questions. MemberLink members do just that. They ask really good questions!
