Top-level professionals talk little but listen a lot.
You can’t learn new things while your mouth is open so shut up and listen.
Remember, there is always something of value in what your associates, your employees, your suppliers and your customers have to say.
Just don’t take anything literally – learn to decipher the message behind the words.
Develop this skill and you’ll be flying up the corporate ladder.
