“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”
Interesting quote by Stephen R. Covey (https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/1538.Stephen_R_Covey), to start with today.
Active listening is one of the several topics in my DTC education. The midterm exam is tomorrow 11.30 AM and I think I am well prepared in the meantime.

The F2F job interview did go well today and I will hear back about next steps by the end of this week. If I make it to the next round, the 2nd interview will be with the CIO of the company. Will keep you posted.
