Are You Listening?

Are You Listening? By ACE impression Consulting Child’s play, you think …of course you listen! But do you really give your full attention to whatever is being said to you? There is a vast difference between hearing and listening. One is passive, the other is active. Hearing is merely a physical ability, whereas listening is a vital and dynamic tool of communication.
