To be an effective communicator, you must master the core competency of listening. A willingness to listen during an interaction allows you to understand others, respond appropriately to what they say, and provide helpful feedback. Bevan (2020) describes ideal listening as active and empathic. In this discussion, you will take a listening quiz, and then explain how using active empathic listening can help you improve as a communicator in your personal and professional relationships.

In your initial post,
