Why Listening Is Such a Big Challenge for Most People?

Why listening is such a big challenge for most people?

”While some may be impressed with how well you speak, the right people will be impressed with how well you listen,” said Mike Myatt the contributor of Forbes. Nearly every aspect of human life could be improved by better listening —  from family matters to corporate business affairs to international relations. Most of us are terrible listeners. We’re such poor listeners, in fact, that we don’t know how much we’re missing.

It is right that listening is a big challenge for most people. Simply because we always thinking that being heard is more important than hearing. We forget that the first rule in communication is to seek understanding before seeking to be understoond, and remember communication is not a one way street.

There are so many barriers to be a good listening. First, the most common one is, we are trying to impress people. Because we want to impress them, so we talk more and more share opinion and ideas, we forget that we need to stop talking and listen other people ideas. Second, because we know the answer. It means that you think you already know what the speaker wants to say, before they actually finish saying it. You might then impatiently cut them off or try to complete the sentence for them. Third, this is what I think the main problem why listening is hard, you probably don’t listen as effectively as you think you do and you probably don’t know it. (Yes?)

We can be a good listener. When we want to change ourselves to be a good listener, listening is no longer a big challenge for us. As Mike Myatt suggests, “Allow me to leave you with one final thought to reflect on – if you’re ready for advanced listening skills, don’t just listen to those who agree with you, but actively seek out dissenting opinions and thoughts. Listen to those that confront you, challenge you, stretch you, and develop you.”





How Technology Affects Communication Positively and Negatively

The development  of technology has improved our lifestyle without we realize it. And without we know it, it has made its impact felt on every aspect of life, especially on communication. The impact, of course have a positve and negative sides. Now, I would tell you the impact of popular technology elements such as, emails , telephones, cell phones, etc. on our means of communication. Mobiles and the internet are literally the basic necessities these days. Admit it, we would feel something missing in life, if there were no mobiles or internet.

These are the impact of technology in communiction:
First, thanks to technology, we now have the power to communicate with anybody on the other side of the world.

  1. There is No Barriers. Communication is now easy; in case of situations when you want to convey something urgently to someone, mobiles and emails come in handy.
  2. Strengthened relations.Communication has made it easy to keep in touch with old contacts, and has also helped strengthen relationships. Thanks to social media.
  3. Better solutions. Communication has brought the world closer and promoted exchange of thoughts to find better solutions to any problem.
  4. E-education. Technological elements of communication like video-conferencing has made it possible to give best education to students via expert faculty on the web.
  5. Impact on relations. Finding someone to date was never so easy, thanks to the dating and chatting websites! No one would disagree if I say – Technology is behind the success of long distance relationships. Video chats and social networking sites have played a big role in keeping people in touch.
  6. Last but not least. Technological elements of communication have promoted faster decision-making, and led to the development and progress of the world. Video conferencing has played a considerate role in promoting faster decision-making. Most of the businesses depend on technology for communication.


These are the negative impact of technology in communication.

The most negative effect of technology that I feel is the charm of the good old world is missing. The letters, and lengthy face-to-face conversations have gone away, and have been replaced by texting or chatting. And then, the current generation lacks essential interpersonal skills. You know,  a major reason for this tendency is increased frequency of communication through texting and chatting on websites.

  1. It is affected on nonverbal communication. Technological means of communication has also affected nonverbal communication. Lack of face-to-face interaction has reduced the nonverbal grasping power of individuals.
  2. Near yet far. Teenagers nowadays especially are always hooked to the social networking sites. They are more close to online friends, but the gap between parents and kids has increased considerably. The communication is missing, parents are not technology savvy and not used to the communication styles of their kids, and this has increased the generation gap.
  3. Reduced social interactions. Consider the socializing among people. Life has changed a lot, there are no social meetings and get-togethers (the frequency has reduced). People are more bothered about their online life rather than the real social life.
  4. Has led to many addictions. People have literally become addicted to the Internet and cell phones, and this addiction has led to many anxiety disorders. People addicted to the Internet feel lonely and isolated. (Agreed?)
  5. Malicious motives. Many people abuse the social networking sites and communicate to unsuspecting beings pretending someone else. This tendency of people has done more harm than good.

This was all about the impact of communication on technology. As you can see, the impact is both positive and negative. But logically thinking, technology has bettered the communication process and has done negligible harm. It all depends on how we use these means. Use the technological means of communication for sane purposes, and don’t abuse the technology for malicious motives.

Business Meeting Video Analysis

The video is entitled “A Team Meeting”. Quartz Power Group is an energy company that  supplies power to homes across the UK. The Human Resources Departmental managers have just started their weekly team meeting, led by Paul – the Head of HR. In this meeting, the members of the Human Resource Departmentpresent each of their weekly status to the Head of Human Resources (HRD).  Based on our analysis, this can be considered as a good and effective meeting because of the following reasons:

  1. The purpose of the meeting is clear, which is for each section head of HRD to provide status updates. This meeting also works according to procedure. Furthermore, because this is a weekly meeting, all of the participants understand the agenda and are prepared.
  2. The meeting is headed by a Chairman, the head of HRD, who controls the discussions.
  3. The length of time of the meeting is correctly defined by the chairman at the start of the meeting. The chairmanbegins by stating that the meeting should only last for 20 minutes so that they can have time for main items afterwards.
  4. All the members of the team are in attendance. Although one member came in late, our group thinks that the chairman should keep everything on schedule and being late shouldn’t be permitted.Because if the meeting starts on time, many things can be covered, and the meeting will be more efficient.
  5. The chairman controls the meeting by hearing each member’sreports and issues in turn. One person speaks at a time and there are no interruptions.
  6. Each member is given an opportunity to make a contribution to the meeting. When a member of the meeting givesan opinion, the chairmanresponds positively.
  7. The chairman checks if there are any issues or difficulties and then confers with the member what action, if any, should be taken for each problem raised.
  8. Solutions to resolve problems are given a time frame. The chairman limits one member’s task to one week so it will be done effectively.
  9. Alternative solutions are discussed, where required.
  10. At the end of each member’s report and discussion, the chairman would make a review and recap to avoid any misunderstandings and remind the member concerned of his/her next task.
  11. The chairman appears vey open and helpful when discussing issues and concerns of each member. He gives advice and sometimes volunteers to help.
  12. The meeting should be closed formally by the chairman, and he should advise the next meeting date and time.

From the video, we can know that the meeting is a status update meeting. Because the purpose of the meeting is to keep the team updated and be on top of what’s happening in the Department, each member make his/her weekly report and any issues needed  to be discussed and resolved. To summarize, the meeting can be categorized as a successful meeting, because the meeting is organized, the discussions are focused on the issues, the chairman runs the team meeting very well, friendly and informal. After all participants shared their updates, the leader recaps what they are going to do.

  1. What are the purposes of a business meeting?

Start with the definition.  A meeting is abusiness activitywhere selected people gather todiscuss matters of the organization and reach decisions jointly, which requires team effort.The purpose of a business meeting is mainly to make decisions, but it also serves other purposes.

However, an unhealthy conflict must be resolved immediately. Meetings will help the conflicting parties to reach a common understanding and thus resolving or minimizing the conflict.

  • Interaction with External Stakeholders

Every organization is to work with different parties of the society and it must build a long term harmonious relationship with them. Meetings are called to exchange information and to share experience with different stakeholders of an organization so that their interaction with the firm is increased.

  1. What are the types of meeting?

Meetings come in different types, some of them are:

  1. Decision-making meetings

Decision-making meetings are all about making decisions.A decision is to be made on a certain issue, such as a deadline for a project. When there’s clear consensus on the meeting’s purpose before the meeting, it’s easier to focus on the decision-making during the meeting.

  1. Innovation meetings

In innovation meetings, all participants are urged to think outside the box, brainstorming and sharing ideas. For innovation meetings to make sense, all participants should be innovating together. Usually, to get the participants to be creative, the meeting is held outside, or there will be creative tasks before the meeting.

  1. Information sharing meetings

Information sharing meetings are about giving information to attendees about a specific issue or sharing information. This type of meeting is usually educational, such as seminars and panel debates.

  1. Status update meetings

Status update meetings are all about sharing project updates and keeping your team on top of decisions in your organization.To hold successful status update meetings, you need to recognize that this meeting is all about sharing information before the meeting. Update participants about the issue before the meeting and remind them what outcomes you want for a particular project.

  1. Team building meetings

Team building meetings help your team to work with each other better.Team building meetings can include anything from discussions to games and motivational speakers.

  1. Organizational Meetings

Usually very soon after each election, a meeting may be necessary to establish the procedures concerning conduct of council meetings. Local practices may vary, but generally the meeting should establish: regular dates, times, and locations for routine council meetings; rules of procedure for conducting business at meetings (Robert’s Rules, etc.); and assignment of council member duties (i.e., mayor pro tempore, committee chairpersons, etc.).

  1. Regular Meetings

This is the official, final public action meeting. It is the only meeting where the council may adopt ordinances or regulations. One very important feature of the regular meeting is the public forum aspect. The regular meeting generally includes at least a citizen comment period and often incorporates a formal public hearing on one or more subjects. While allowing public comment to some degree, the regular meeting always allows the public an opportunity to hear the council discussion on each subject.

  1. Special or Emergency Meetings

Emergencies and special situations may require convening a special meeting often with little, if any, advance notice. Examples of special meeting items include, but are not limited to: emergency ordinances, unexpected matters requiring official action before the next regularly 57 scheduled meeting, emergency equipment replacement, financial problems, and health and safety emergencies. While the occasional need for such meetings cannot be denied, the term “emergency” should be used very carefully to avoid abuse of the special meeting.

  1. Continued Meetings

A meeting that is continued from the previous meeting.

  1. Closed Sessions

This is a session that includes only the board members. This meeting requires secrecy in discussing matters. Typical topic areas for closed (in-camera) meetings include the security of the property of the organization, the disclosure of intimate, personal or financial details in respect to a person, the acquisition or disposition of property, decisions with respect to negotiations with employees, and litigation affecting the organization.

  1. What makes a good meeting?
  • The meeting must have a clear purpose and should stick to the agenda. A meeting, like any business event, succeeds when it is preceded by planning, characterized by focus, governed by structure, and controlled by a budget.
  • The meeting must start and end on time.Short meetings free people to work on the essential activities that represent the core of their jobs. In contrast, long meetings prevent people from working on critical tasks such as planning, communicating, and learning.
  • Good participantswhich are properly prepared. Unprepared participants will spend their time in the meeting preparing for the meeting.
  • A good leader that understands the purpose of the meeting, makes sure that all participants understand this purpose, helps keep the discussion on track, works with participants to carry out the business of the meeting in the time allotted, and tries to ensure that everyone is involved appropriately in discussions.
  • Minutes must be taken. It is better to spend a little time preparing for solutions than to spend a lot of time fixing problems.
  • Effective meetings require sharing control and making commitments.
  1. What are the characteristics of a successful business meeting?

The following ten ingredients characterize an effective meeting:

  • Clarity of mandate, purpose, issues, and process.
  • Participation protocol and etiquette: Only one person speaks at a time. Interruptions (verbal or non-verbal) are kept to the necessary minimum. A courteous, civilized and respectful tone is maintained. Discussions are focused on issues, not personalities.
  • Productivity and forward movement: Discussion progresses along a pre-defined agenda, in an efficient and timely manner. For the sake of follow-up, good minutes are taken.
  • Flexibility and room for creative thinking: Meeting structures (agendas and rules) are used in a flexible manner, to accommodate and promote creativity and open discussion rather than stifle them.
  • Quality: Informed and in-depth discussions take place, leading to meaningful outcomes and thoughtful decisions.
  • Balance and inclusion: All members are given an equal opportunity to participate. Dominated discussions are avoided.
  • Openness and Collaboration: Listening takes place, and members work together towards a common goal; Members are open to changing their views based on the discussion; Debates are “personality-neutral”: hard on the issues, soft on the people.
  • Shared responsibility: Everyone (and not only the leader) takes responsibility for the success of the process; Finger pointing is minimized; Promises are kept and assigned tasks are completed.
  • Variety and a light Touch: The meeting’s pace and activities are varied, to make it more engaging, interesting, and enticing to attend. A light touch is introduced when appropriate: “Take yourself lightly and your work seriously”.
  • Logistical support: Logistical details are managed proactively and professionally, to allow for an optimal use of time at the meeting.

Pulau Tidung

Bagi anda para petualang nusantara yang sedang mapping schedule liburan, dan ternyata memutuskan untuk berwisata ke pulau tidung. Tidak ada salahnya anda mengetahui terlebih dahulu kelebihan dan kekurangan wisata pulau tidung, berikut informasinya:

Kelebihan Wisata Pulau Tidung

  • Biayanya relatif murah
  • Banyak jasa travel yang meyediakan paket wisata, klik disini untuk tips memilih jasa travel ke pulau tidung
  • Lautnya masih asri dan biru (Karangnya bagus, ikan-ikannya berwarna warni)
  • Harga makanan dan jajanan yang murah
  • Banyak ikannya, sangat cocok bagi anda yang punya hobi mancing. Sangat direkomendasikan untuk anda yang ingin wisata ke sana untuk membawa pancingan. Dan jika anda yang cukup bermodal anda bisa menyewa perahu nelayan disana dari yang kecil hingga sedang dengan biaya sekitar 250.000-500.000/perahu. Biasanya harga tersebut akan anda dapatkan jika anda ingin memancing tengah malam di tengah laut. Untuk berapa jam lamanya, pada dasarnya tergantung anda menyediakan kopi/atau makanan untuk nelayan yang menemani anda dikapal
  • Dan masih banyak lagi lainnya

Kekurangan Wisata Pulau Tidung

  • Harus rela melawati daerah yang bau untuk pergi kesana, karena belum punya dermaga khusus untuk ke pulau tidung, berdoa saja semoga gubernur Jokowi atau gubernur DKI Jakarta lainnya ada yang peduli dengan pulau tidung
  • Anda harus rela memarkirkan kendaraaan anda di muara angke yang sangat bau amis, dengan biaya ongkos parkir oleh petugas disana yaitu Rp 50.000/mobil pada tahun 2013 akhir, dan mudah-mudahan tidak naik ditahun berikutknya
  • Anda akan cukup was-was pada saat menuju kepulau tidung, woww sereemm..!! karena dari muara angke ke pulai tidung anda hanya bisa menggunakan perahu nelayan, yang notabanenya perahunya ala kadarnya, tidak bisa jalan cepat, goyang jika di hantam ombak besar, dan umur perahunya cukup tua. Mudah-mudahan kedepanya akan ada transportasi kapal laut yang memadai dan aman seperti di pelabuhan merak.
  • Karena tempat wisata Pulau yang baru di kelola sekitar 3 tahunan, sehingga masih banyak kekurangan disana-sini, seperti fasilitas, akses, dan wahana hiburan yang masih belum variatif. Air juga menjadi kendala di Pulau Tidung, bukan volumenya melainkan rasanya yang Payau dan sedikit berlendir.

Cara mengatasinya:

Untuk menangani masalah ini kita harus berperan aktif, mulai dari pemerintah dan masyarakatnya dengan menjaga kondisi lingkungan dan membuat peraturan yang harus dipatuhi berdasarkan sanksi-sanksi yang sudah ditetapkan agar lingkungan dan kondisi di Pulau Tidung maupun Pulau Seribu tetap terjaga.


Siapa yang suka jalan-jalan???? *hands up*

Siapa yang suka ke tempat-wisata menarik di Indonesia???? *hands up*

Kalau kita membicarakan wisata, apa sih sebenarnya pengertian wisata itu? bedanya wisata dengan pariwisata apa?

Dan kepariwisataan itu apa?

Istilah pariwisata berasal dari bahasa Sansekerta yang terdiri dari suku kata “pari” berarti berkeliling atau bersama, dan suku kata “wisata” berarti perjalanan. Jadi secara pengertiannya pariwisata berarti perjalanan keliling dari suatu tempat ke tempat lain.
Kepariwisataan adalah merupakan kegiatan jasa yang memanfaatkan kekayaan alam dan lingkungan hidup yang khas, seperti : hasil budaya, peninggalan sejarah, pemandangan alam yang indah dan iklim yang nyaman. Perjalanan wisata adalah perjalanan keliling yang memakan waktu lebih dari tiga hari, yang dilakukan sendiri maupun di atur oleh Biro Perjalanan Umum dengan acara meninjau beberapa kota atau tempat baik di dalam maupun di luar negeri.
Adapun wisatawan menurut definisi International Union of Travel Organization (IUOTO) adalah :
1.      Visitor (pengunjung) : seseorang yang melakukan perjalanan ke suatu Negara yang bukan Negara tempat ia tinggal, karena suatu alasan yang bukan pekerjaannya sehari-hari.
2.      Tourist (wisatawan) : pengunjung yang tinggal sementara di suatu tempat paling sedikit 24 jam di negara yang dikunjungi dengan motivasi perjalanannya adalah :
– Berhibur (bersenang-senang, liburan, kesehatan, studi, alasan keagamaan dan olahraga)
– Berdagang,, kunjungan keluarga, misi dan pertemuan-pertemuan.
3.      Excursionist (pelancong) : pengunjung sementara di suatu negara tanpa menginap.
Jadi, wisatawan adalah setiap orang yang berpergian dari tempat tinggalnya untuk berkunjung ke tempat lain dengan menikmati perjalanan dan kunjungan itu.
Di Indonesia kita mempunyai banyak sekali tempat-tempat wisata yang indah dan menarik untuk dikunjungi. Ya memang sulit sih untuk dikunjungi semua. Karena di Indonesia tidak hanya menarik di wisata alamnya saja, wisata belanja dan wisata kulinernya pun juga wajib dicoba. Berikut saya akan share tempat wisata alam yang akan saya kunjungi nanti (kalau punya uang nanti T__T)


Pulau Karimun Jawa
Tempat wisata yang telah ditetapkan sebagai taman laut nasional Indonesia ini mempunyai lebih dari 90 jenis karang laut, dan lebih dari 240 jenis ikan. Di beberapa pulau, Anda dapat melihat hutan mangrove dan hutan pantai. Selain itu Anda juga dapat menjumpai beberapa jenis satwa di daratan, misalnya rusa, kera, berbagai jenis burung, penyu, dan lain-lain. Julukan lain dari pulau karimun ini Pulau Liburan, Carribean van Java, Paradise of Java.
Menurut cerita masyarakat setempat, asal muasal nama Karimunjawa adalah dari kisah Syekh Amir Hasan, putra Sunan Muria yang nakal dan merupakan murid Sunan Kudus. Ia dibuang ke kepulauan yang bila dilihat dari kejauhan disebut kerimun-kerimun dalam bahasa Jawa atau berarti samar-samar dalam bahasa Indonesia. Lama kelamaan, kepulauan tersebut akrab dipanggil sebagai Kepulauan Karimunjawa.



Trio Gili merupakan tiga pulau cantik yang ada di Lombok. Ketiga pulau tersebut antara lain Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno dan Gili Air. Ketiganya tak hanya dikenal oleh wisatawan domestik, tapi juga telah berhasil mengundang banyak wisatawan mancanegara untuk datang.

Dari ketiga pulau tersebut, bisa dibilang Gili Trawangan adalah yang paling populer. Selain karena ukurannya yang lebih luas dibanding kedua pulau lainnya, di sini juga telah berdiri banyak tempat hiburan seperti bar dan kafe. Ada banyak kegiatan yang bisa Anda lakukan di tempat wisata ini mulai dari berjemur, menyelam sampai snorkeling. Yang lebih asyik, Anda juga bisa menyewa sepeda atau naik cidomo, kereta kuda semacam delman, untuk berkeliling pulau.

Meskipun Gili Trawangan lebih banyak dikunjungi, namun Gili Meno dan Gili Air tak kalah menarik. Kedua pulau ini juga memiliki keindahan pantai dan alam bawah laut yang menunggu untuk Anda jelajahi. Suasana keduanya relatif lebih sepi dan tenang sehingga cocok untuk Anda yang memang ingin lepas dari keramaian.

3. Malioboro

Di atas saya udah share wisata alam yang ingin saya kunjungi. Yang ini adalah tempat untuk wiskul (wisata kuliner) yang ingin saya kunjungi lagi. Saya rindu dengan suasana jogja apalagi di malam hari, apalagi di malioboro. >_<


Inilah jalan di Jogja yang menjadi salah satu pilihan favorit para penikmat perjalanan untuk menghabiskan waktu di Jogja. Di sepanjang jalan Malioboro, Anda dapat berbelanja ria dan mendapatkan salah satu barang unik khas Jogja. Jika suka, Anda bahkan dapat menyusuri toko-toko yang ada di pasar Beringharjo saat siang hari. Kawasan Malioboro ini adalah salah satu tujuan wisata belanja Jogjakarta yang terkenal.

Tahukah Anda, Jalan Malioboro awalnya digunakan sebagai rute upacara dan membentuk sebuah garis lurus jika ditarik dari Keraton Yogyakarta ke Gunung Merapi. Di Malioboro, Anda bahkan dapat menikmati sajian kuliner atau menyantap hidangan di lesehan. Di malam hari, kuliner angkringan Jogja dapat Anda nikmati di kawasan ini. Malioboro adalah destinasi favorit di Jogja, yang bahkan hanya dengan duduk bersantai di depan Monumen Serangan 11 Maret, Anda dapat menikmati suasana Malioboro yang memikat.
