Listening and respect others opinions

BNC Skills 2020 Descriptions

Intellectuel_bell here,

I think that listening is an important skill. This is because if you own a business you need to keep yourself updated with news so that you can help the business evolve, and you do this by listening. It can reduce working conflicts because listening to your colleagues can help generate more ideas. You will be more likely to retain information; that can help you be more productive. If you don't listen to yourself and others, you will become confused. Through listening, you learn from other people, so both of you benefit. If you never listen in work, there will be a lot of arguments, as you could have made a mistake because you didn't listen, and that could cause the company to lose money.

Thanks for reading.

    This is a great discussion starter, intellectual_bell. I wonder whether other people would agree that listening is the most important skill out of listening, speaking, creativity and problem-solving? Which do you think is the most important for helping the climate?

      I think that all of them are equally important because when you listen you have to speak and when you speak it turns into creativity and then with all you solve problems.

      I would say that all are equally important because one cannot be a good listener when he/she doesn't have good creativity. The ability of one to be a good listener, a good speaker, a good problem solver and having great creativity is all in the same flow leading to great accomplishments in life. One listens and and speaks out their opinion thereafter he/she solves the problem through listening to others opinions and respecting them adding onto that with great creativity. If one can use these life skills properly I believe they can have a better future.
      Thank you.

        I think all of the four skills work together because if one is able to listen to one's challenge, then one can be able to plan and create ideas on how they will solve the challenge

    Good morning,
    I think that when you listen to others about their problems or their mindset on things it helps you to understand the person more and communicate better with them.
    I also think that speaking your mind even though it will hurt just do it to let people know what is on your mind.
    I am also sure that when you solve problems you get to understand questions more and it also improves your thinking and brain muscles.
    Then lastly about creativity when you suggest your thoughts and ideas it helps you as well as others .
    thank you for your time .

    Good evening.
    I too think that what "ambitious_seahorse" says is right. I think that the four core-necessities to earning a lot of respect(listening, creativity, speaking and problem-solving) work hand-in-hand. None of these skills can can be properly exercised without the other. So, one must improve and perfect in the four of them since improvement in one skill powers success in the other.
    I hope others may pick an idea for my thought on this issue.

    To add on, listening while others are speaking is respect. No one can kill the freedom of speak and not letting people in work give their opinions is a dictator thing leads to a poor, hatered and closed society. So listening well to all people and taking into consideration solving there problems is a must to produce a productive society, remember that there is no complete person in this world. So you still need to share ideas to learn in this life.

    For some time now, especially on social media, I have noticed the intolerance of many regarding opinions that diverge from their own. The most convincing example is that of Olivier Bernard, or the Pharmachien, who questioned the relevance of vitamin C injections. This earned him threats, attacks and intimidation attempts in the but to silence him1.
    Besides, I think there is a lot to be gained by listening to what others have to say. Indeed, discussing with your opponents allows you to learn new things, for the benefit of our thinking which is seen more in-depth and nuanced, which helps to gain credibility. It is also about learning mutual respect, which is essential in society. To put an end to any discussion only pits us against each other, which is often counterproductive in gaining buy-in to his idea. To avoid slippage, you have to control your emotions minimally, while avoiding taking each disagreement personally.

    listening is a vital skill in all walks and parts of life. although the importance of listening is undeniable, we still have to be cautious of what we listen to. listening to everything we hear can make us to be fake news outlets ourselves. the virtue of listening to other opinions is vital for learning but you should be able to recognize what and what not to listen to. this quality will inadvertently save our skins many times.

    In my own opinion, I believe that all skills are very relevant for helping the climate. Because for an individual to be able to make change he/she, must first learn, to listen. This is key because it is important for an individual know what is going on in your environment. After that you apply creativity skills to know what to do about the recent climatic situations you have heard about, then you apply your speaking skills by communicating with other people that have the same or similar opinion on the same issue, then you solve the problems first beginning with yourself .

    I think one of the main causes of climate change is global warming .This is as a result of uncontrolled deforestation and swamp drainage. This activities if not controlled can lead to drought and death of animals and the long term effect would be desertification. Some measures can be put in place to prevent this . These measures can be enforcing laws against any form of environmental degradation, setting up forest reserves and encouraging the use of irrigation farming.

Tt enjoys a Mediterranean climate, which is cold in winter, hot and dry in summer, and moderate in spring and autumn.

    Well I think you’re right because listening would make a healthy conversation. Also I think people would like to talk to you since you’re listening to their opinions and trying to understand them. However people who don’t listen always try to prove their opinions forcefully which I truly think it’s wrong.
