  1. Thanks for the nod on the listening inventory. I’ve had several people in my office complete the survey. It’s one of the only ways I’ve found that one can look in the mirror, if you will, when it comes to assessing listening skills.

  2. Yes- I’d agree that checklists/quizzes etc do help in increasing self-awareness – otherwise it’s all too easy to fail to spot your own areas for development.
