2. Know Your Biases

One of the biggest impediments to effective listening is bias. There are many types of bias to be aware of: some related to how well you listen and some that affect the decisions you make.

This article will help you to spot them in yourself and others, and to reduce or remove them in your efforts to be a better listener.


3. MBTI® Type Heads
