Walter is a focused, active listener. He is very adept at focusing on a speaker and providing the necessary feedback. You know you are being “listened to” when you speak with Walter.
Brenda snoops around her co-workers too much.
Greg seems to have a natural gift for speaking, yet does not understand that he needs to listen to people speaking with him. Unfortunately, this results in many misunderstandings that could have been avoided.
Yoli is not a good listener. She seems to always be thinking about what she is going to say next and does not provide active feedback to the person speaking.
