The ability to listen and pick up signals enables one to assess levels of understanding, agreement and commitment. It can help one to identify potential allies and opponents. Those who are in transmit mode can miss telltale signs of encouragement or warning. Those who talk rather than listen may forgo useful advice and miss vital information. Two-way communication is required.
