This week we celebrate one year of producing Complete Developer Podcast. It is exciting as we hit our goal for the year a month early. In this week’s episode the guys talk about the apprenticeship program that Will put together to get BJ up to speed as a developer.
Much of this outline comes from SkillsYouNeed.com. We highly recommend looking at the site. Will and BJ start by talking about why you need to improve you listening skills by explaining the differences in hearing and listening and the benefits of being an active listener. They then provide tips for improving listening skills by removing distractions and putting your focus on the person speaking. Next they define what it takes to become an active listener and signs of active listening. Finally the guys discuss some of the hindrances to becoming an active listener and how to avoid them
