    I wholeheartedly agree. Without being able to engage clients and colleagues and communicate what you’re doing and why – any good work can be blocked, overseen or overridden. Geddin.

    Absolutely! You have to actively listen to people – your users and your clients. Active listening is a skill and it can be learned.
