  • Effective Listening: Essentials Of Human Communication

    “Effective listening is listening that is tailored to the specific communication situation” (DeVito 2013).

This question will be illustrated in further detail throughout the course of this paper, as well as the different styles of effective listening, and ways to improve listening effectiveness. On page 57 of Essentials of Human Communication, I took the assessment titled “How Do You Listen” (DeVito 2013). By doing so, I was able to recognize both my proficient listening skills as well as those that need improvement.
