Affirm: Nod your head to show you understand. You can also make “mmm” and “ah” sounds to show you heard them. Respectful listening shows that you care about the person who is talking, which in turn has an effect on how much they will listen to you. Prove you really did listen by following up afterward. Listening well is a skill that you can learn. Start by giving your full attention to the speaker. Stop what you are doing, and turn to face them.

I picked up the phone to the process improvement group and asked them whether using the templates was mandatory. The surprising answer was that the templates were just provided as examples based on documents from another project.
