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.
