5 Ways to Get a Man to Listen

June 17, 2010

5. Finally, Stop Talking When You Are Done.

I have actually seen women win over a man to her way of thinking but then keep the discussion going. This can bring a new point to the table that causes the man to rethink and change his opinion. I have watched saleswomen lose a sale and young female engineers lose support for their ideas by doing this. When you have made your point and everyone agrees with you, STOP TALKING.

If you follow these simple rules, you will find that men can and do listen. (Of course, your teenage son may still need some extra work but that’s another article).
