"Nature has given us ONE tongue, but

TWO ears that we may hear twice as much as we speak."

Epictetus,

Greek philosopher

"If each of America's more than 100 million workers prevented just one

$10 mistake by better listening, their organizations would save $1 billion."

Private excursions away from the speaker can be dangerous.

The Rate Gap Between Speaking and

Listenting

We speak at

120 words per minute

BUT

We hear and process much quicker.

Hear 50 words

Tune in and think about them

Hear next 60 words

Tune out and mind wanders

Hear next 70 words

Tune back in and think about them

Because out brains can process words more quickly than they are delivered, we have to learn to use the “rate gap” to improve our listening skills.
